Rameau: Les Boréades (1763) - concert performance
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
The plot of Les Boréades was inspired by the story of the love between the nymph Orithyia and Boreas from Greco-Roman mythology: a relationship that bore the two Boreads. Rameau's tragedy contains everything that can possibly add another twist to the plot of a five-act Baroque opera: a secret, seduction, a disguise, love, an enchanted arrow, prophecy, revenge, a storm, an earthquake, a suicide attempt, deus ex machina - and finally, the happy ending. Performing the work will be an international cast accompanied by the Purcell Choir and Orfeo Orchestra, with György Vashegyi on the podium.
Collaborating partner: Centre de musique baroque de Versailles
