Description of the piece from https://en.chopin.nifc.pl/chopin/composition/detail/id/48
In mid May 1833, the Opéra Comique in Paris was the venue for the premiere of the opera Ludovic, the last of the numerous operas by Ferdinand Hérold. Chopin, an opera aficionado, attended the premiere. Ludovic failed to gain any great notoriety or a lasting place in music history, apart from one of the ariettas or cavatinas, in rondo form, beginning with the words Je vends des scapulaires (I sell scapulars), which was popular for a while. It also interested Chopin, thanks to whom we know a little about Hérolds last work today. Chopin used that cavatina as the theme for variations. It is simple and charming, melodious and lively, and it swings along in that 6/8 metre which Chopin liked to use.
