Created at the festival of Aix-en-Provence on 21 july 1982
New production of the Dijon Opera
More than a mere last waltz, Les Boréades is a seminal and unique work, that straddles the centuries as an imperishable masterpiece. For this revolutionary opera that defies classification, Emmanuelle Haïm and the Concert d’Astrée join with Barrie Kosky, the enfant terrible of staging (Castor & Pollux at Dijon in 2014) along with a cast of the highest calibre.
Filmed for the first time since 2003 at the Opera of Paris directed by William Christie and 2004 at the Theatre of Châtelet in Paris.
