Renaissance Italy, the grand shores of Sicily, the winds from the sea and war epics, the battles of wits in courts where lords and artists develop a common way of life: romantic reverie during the first centuries of modern history gave numerous masterpieces to the plastic arts and opera. For an idealist coupled with a lover of Italy such as Berlioz, Shakespeare's comedy depicts a long-entertained subject. With this return to sources, Berlioz created a work that reflected him (caustic and tender, sublime and grotesque, sensitive and powerfully lyrical) and one of the most beautiful compositions of the genre.
