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!

With the intrigue of French baroque opera: the mournful love, the storm, the passage to the Underworld, the descent of the Gods… and the famous passages from Lully’s Armide, Charpentier’s Medea, from Marin Marais’ Sémélé (The Earthquake) through to Campra’s Le Carnaval de Venise. All the magic of Louis XIV’s French opera bursting with unexpected pearls and discoveries!
