Augusta Holmès – who wrote both libretto and music for this work set in seventeenth-century Montenegro – recounts the struggle of a warlord torn between passionate love and honour. La Montagne noire does not shrink from extravagances of every kind, and allowed its author to enter the exclusive circle of women fortunate enough to create a work for the Paris Opera.
