From his experience with the writing of Eudoxie under the authoritative eye of papa Voltaire at Ferney, Chabanon progressively frees himself from the latter’s ascendancy. The relationship between the master and the disciple finally leads Chabanon into developing a personal thought as a poet as well as a theoretician of music, thereby departing from Voltaire on opera: Chabanon understanding it as a musical genre, and Voltaire as a literary one.
