Charles Gounod

Ciao Opera Mavens. The 1854 Gounod opera La Nonne Sanglante (The Bloody Nun), June 2018, is available on YouTube. I originally decided to only “sample” this Paris Opera Comique rarity, but could not give it up because of the music. The production is good but very, very dark for this macabre (and silly) melodrama. Here is the Wikipedia synopsis:
