Bon anniversaire, monsieur Dupont!

Gabriel Dupont was born on March 1, 1878. I’ve spoken extensively about his piano works, but his operas were also quite popular. Have a listen to his final opera, Antar. He never got to see it staged before his death, but audiences loved it when it finally premiered in 1921!
