The Stabat Mater was performed complete for the first time in Paris at the Théâtre-Italien’s Salle Ventadour on 7 January 1842. The Escudiers reported that: ‘Rossini’s name was shouted out amid the applause. The entire work
transported the audience; the triumph was complete. Three numbers had to be repeated and the audience left the theater moved and seized by an admiration that quickly won all Paris’. Wagner, who had yet to achieve much success, was less impressed declaring “O ye foolish people, have ye lost your liking for your [Rhein?] gold? I know somebody who for five francs will make you five waltzes, each of them better than that misery of the wealthy master’s!”
