An Imaginary Opera / Hervé Niquet & Le Concert Spirituel at Royal Opera of Versailles 2017 in 4K

“Original creation from arias and unpublished operas of Mondonville, Bertin de la Doué, Rameau, Campra, Dauvergne, Colin de Blamont, Francoeur, Rebel, Marais, Leclair, Charpentier, Stuck, Destouches, Montéclair, Gervais, Royer, Lully.

From the finest moments of the French baroque repertoire, which he has lived through with Le Concert Spirituel for the past 30 years, Hervé Niquet has teamed up with the Versailles Baroque Music Center to rebuild his imaginary opera!

You will find the intrigue of French baroque opera: the mournful love, the storm, the passage to the Underworld, the descent of the Gods… and the passages you love so much from Armide de Lully, Medea de Charpentier, from Sémélé de Marin Marais (The Earthquake) through to the Venice Carnival of Campra. It’s all the magic of Louis XIV’s French opera that will burst… with unexpected pearls and discoveries!”
