Cassandre (Cassandra), accustomed to his daily life in a Parisian police station, takes his new position in Annecy, in order to be with her son. This new position in the provinces strongly displeases Cassandra, City inveterate, which hardly supports this new life, too quiet for his taste. She changes her mind quickly when it comes up against equally breathless business than it had to be treated in Paris. Crimes occur, Cassandra and her new team must resolve as quickly as possible so as not to terrorize the population or inflame suspicions.

Cassandre - Les Troyens - Netflix

Les Troyens (in English: The Trojans) is a French grand opera in five acts by Hector Berlioz. The libretto was written by Berlioz himself from Virgil's epic poem the Aeneid; the score was composed between 1856 and 1858. Les Troyens is Berlioz's most ambitious work, the summation of his entire artistic career, but he did not live to see it performed in its entirety. Under the title Les Troyens à Carthage, the last three acts were premièred with many cuts by Léon Carvalho's company, the Théâtre Lyrique, at their theatre (now the Théâtre de la Ville) on the Place du Châtelet in Paris on 4 November 1863, with 21 repeat performances.

Berlioz began the libretto on 5 May 1856 and completed it toward the end of June 1856. He finished the full score on 12 April 1858. Berlioz had a keen affection for literature, and he had admired Virgil since his childhood. The Princess Carolyne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein was a prime motivator to Berlioz to compose this opera.

On 3 May 1861, Berlioz wrote in a letter: “I am sure that I have written a great work, greater and nobler than anything done hitherto.” Elsewhere he wrote: “The principal merit of the work is, in my view, the truthfulness of the expression.” For Berlioz, truthful representation of passion was the highest goal of a dramatic composer, and in this respect he felt he had equalled the achievements of Gluck and Mozart.
