University of California Press

Data from weekly discussions in Ménestrel referring to intentions to perform, negotiations, performances, and reviews of French works abroad. Bracketed items are premieres mentioned in Alfred Loewenberg, Annals of Opéra, 1597–1940 (Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons, 1943), but not discussed in Ménestrel and so not counted in the figures below. Cities are organized by how many mentions they have in Ménestrel, in descending order, and alphabetically by city and by country within each category.
