Saint François d'Assise is an opera in three acts and eight scenes by French composer and librettist Olivier Messiaen, written from 1975 to 1983. It concerns Saint Francis of Assisi, the title character, and displays the composer's devout Catholicism. The world première was given by the Paris Opera at the Palais Garnier on 28 November 1983. Despite his studies of Mozart and Wagner operas, Messiaen thought he would never compose an opera.

José Van Dam is one of today’s most famous and requested interpreters of the bass-baritone repertoire, and since his debut at Paris Opera in The Trojans, he is regularly invited to the most important opera houses and festivals all over the world. His vast repertoire includes the title-role of Falstaff and Simon Boccanegra (Verdi), Don Giovanni (Mozart), Guglielmo Tell (Rossini), Boris Godunov (Moussorgski) and Wozzeck (Berg). José Van Dam created the title part in the world premiere of Olivier Messiaen’s Saint François d’Assise at Paris Opera, and he was equally acclaimed in this role in the tion at Salzburg Festival.
