Hirsch II, 613. RISM M3264. On ne s'avise jamais de tout, to a libretto by Michel-Jean Sedaine after Jean de La Fontaine's tale of the same name, was first performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique (Foire St Laurent) on September 14, 1761. This opera, with text by Sedaine, "marked the beginning of a long series of successful collaborations between the two . Like Sedaine, Monsigny had a feeling for the theatre, and devoted all his artistic efforts to the stage. He took pains to match his music to the subject and to the action, and was personally involved with the `mise en scene'. Though he never achieved the fluency of Gretry, nor the technique of Philidor, Monsigny nevertheless showed a remarkable feeling for melody (Gretry considered him `the most tuneful of all musicians') and a freshness of inspiration which is always attractive, despite its limitations."
