Nicolò Isouard

Nicolò Isouard was a Maltese composer who subsequently became very famous in Napoleon’s Paris. He was already popular in 1790’s Malta, and when Napoleon expelled the Order of St. John from the Maltese Islands in 1798, Isouard was placed in charge of the theatre where his first opera, Casaciello Perseguitato da un Mago, had been previously performed in 1793.

Several historians believed that he was of French origin due to the pronunciation of his surname and also due to his association with the Opera Comique of Paris.

Nicolò Isouard was born in Zebbug, Malta in the year 1775 and died in Paris in 1818.
