La grand-mére amoureuse was performed by marionettes at the Foire Saint-Germain in Paris in 1726. This comédie en vaudevilles, written by Louis Fuzelier and his collaborator Dorneval, is a parody of Atys, the tragédie en musique by Lully and Quinault, which was revived at the Opéra in the 1725¿26 season. With nearly continuous music consisting of vaudevilles and airs parodies, and with both discernable critical distancing from and intertextual reference to its target opera, La grand-mére amoureuse is a mature and particularly polished example of opera parody, providing a fascinating perspective on contemporary reception of establishment opera. This edition makes La grand-mére amoureuse accessible by setting the sung portions of the play to the specified vaudevilles and providing basse continue parts, taken whenever possible from contemporary sources. The resulting score facilitates study of this important example of a little-known genre and is also suitable for performance.
