He used to say that the difficulty for him was not to get millions, but to know how to spend them or use them properly.

Fra Diavolo, Le Domino Noir, Les Diamants de la Couronne (of which one critic said they were the last diamonds in Aubers crown), and many other successful operas, were translated into every civilized language and sung all over Europe. Fertility is not always a proof of greatness, because quantity is not necessarily quality, but it is undoubtedly more difficult to write a number of great works than a few, just as a horse may well run one mile in two minutes, and yet not succeed in running five miles in twenty. In the year 1844, Auber had great success with an opera called Le Due dOlonnes. Appointed Directeur des concerts de la cour, . . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN.
