Bolero de Ponce de Leon by Henri Montan Berton (1767-1844)
Henri Montan Berton is principally remembered as a composer of operas, most of which were first performed at the Opéra-Comique. Riding a wave of anti-clericalism which arose at the time of the French Revolution, his first real success was with Les rigueurs du cloître (23 August 1790), “in which a young nun is saved from entombment at the hands of a corrupt mother superior.”
