A scène lyrique is a form of performance including mime, dance and music, a precursor of the melodrama. The term possibly first used with reference to Pygmalion by Jean Jacques Rousseau.

F.C.L. Bosman (1928, p. 92) uses the Dutch term Lyrische Scene for this, and seems to be referring to a one-man performance done by Delémery, but the problem is clearly his sentence structure - he is actually referring to Rousseau's work.
