(Halévy: La Juive). Sop. Daughter of Eléazar, a Jewish goldsmith, she is the Jewess of the opera's title. She falls in love with ‘Samuel’, who confesses to being the Christian Prince Léopold and married to Eudoxie. Sentenced to death by Cardinal de Brogni for breaking the Lord's laws, she refuses to save herself by denouncing her Judaism. As she dies in a boiling cauldron, Eléazar reveals that she is not a Jewess, but the daughter of Brogni, whom he saved years earlier when Rome was sacked. Created (1835) by Marie Cornélie Falcon.
