Orchestration of various fragments progressed much more slowly, and as they were completed, they were sometimes performed at various concerts. Initial attempts at staging the work at the Paris Opéra failed, therefore the opera had its world premiere in the Théatre de la Monnaie (La Monnaie) in Brussels on January 7, 1884 (directed by Alexandre Lapissida). Within a year it was also performed with great success in Covent Garden, Lyon, Monte Carlo and, finally, at the Paris Opéra (Palais Garnier) on June 12, 1885, (directed there by Raoul Lapissida).

The FIA (w:FIA) is meeting with teams in Monte Carlo (w:Monte Carlo) and is expected to approve the use by some teams of a standardised power unit provided by Cosworth (w:Cosworth), an automotive engineering company, from 2010 onwards. The move to a standard engine, which is common in lower tiers of open wheeled racing such as GP2 (w:GP2 Series), was pushed for by FIA President Max Mosley (w:Max Mosley) earlier this year as he aims to reduce team costs. This would not see the exclusion of manufacturer made engines, as at this time participation in the system would be voluntary and teams would be free to build licensed Cosworth engines or their own powerplants but on a performance par with the Cosworth unit. Mosley has stated that stabilising Formula One means that the FIA "...must stabilize the system with a base engine which anyone can have and which is inexpensive, as well as a standard gearbox" and has warned of future budget problems, saying that "Honda pulled out because of falling car sales and there is no guarantee that these falling sales, which affect all manufacturers, will not drop further". thumb left Circuit de Monaco (File:Circuit_Monaco.svg) Brawn (w:Brawn GP) Mercedes (w:Mercedes-Benz in motorsport) driver Jenson Button (w:Jenson Button) won today's FIA (w:Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) Formula One (w:Formula One) 2009 (w:2009 Monaco Grand Prix) Grand Prix de Monaco (w:Monaco Grand Prix) on the Circuit de Monaco (w:Circuit de Monaco) at Monte Carlo (w:Monte Carlo), Monaco.
