Adolphe Adam is best known today for the ballets Giselle and Le Corsaire, but his prolific output included 39 operas and several other ballet scores, including the vivacious tale of La Filleule des fées ('The Fairies' God-daughter'). The story takes place in an idealized countryside, revolving around the god-daughter Ysaure's complex amorous affairs and the magical interventions of good and wicked fairies. With it's brilliantly colorful orchestration, memorable themes and rhythmic momentum, this work is very much the equal of Giselle.
