(1781 - 1841)

In 1799 the singer and composer Felice Blangini moved from his native Turin to Paris, where he worked as a singer, teacher and composer, with his first operas staged in Paris in the early years of the 19th century. In 1805 he entered the service of the Duke of Saxe-Coburg in Munich, followed by employment under Napoleon's sister, Pauline Borghese, in her private musical establishment. His reputed liaison with her, broken off by Napoleon, led to an appointment in Kassel under Jéorome Bonaparte. The protection of Talleyrand and the Duchesse de Berry secured him a position in Paris, after the fall of Napoleon, as superintendent of the royal chapel and court composer, with a concurrent position as professor singing at the Conservatoire. His court appointments ended with the change of régime in 1830. He wrote some thirty operas, which enjoyed varied success, and a large number of songs, romances and vocal nocturnes.
