Charles Camille Saint-Saens (1835-1921) in 1904, he had become one of the most prolific and revered composers in the history of France. The masterful Saint-Saens created in all genres of music, including the symphonic poem; he was the first to introduce this musical medium to France. During the year 1903, Saint-Saens composed the one-act opera and "lyrical poem" entitled Helene. Although he was an accomplished poet and writer, Saint-Saens most often hired a lyricist to accompany his music; however, for Helene, the composer turned librettist, writing the words as well as the music for the opera. Helene debuted on February 18, 1904 at Monte Carlo. Thereafter, Saint-Saens traveled to the United States and despite an illness during the journey, the aged composer remained undaunted, fulfilling his musical obligations in Washington, Philadelphia and Chicago. By 1907, the legendary Saint-Saens had been performing and composing music for almost 70 years, beginning at the astonishing age of two, when the child prodigy took his first piano lesson. As a measure of their admiration and respect for the maestro, the French city of Dieppe erected a statue of the composer in 1907. The city had earlier built a museum named for him and dedicated it to his brilliant career. Renowned for his adherence to harmony, form and musical craftsmanship, Saint-Saens' most famous works including the symphonic poem Danse Macabre (1873), the opera Samson and Delilah (1877), the comic symphony Carnival of the Animals (1886) and the Second Cello Concerto (1902).
