Les Indes Galantes at Paris Opéra Bastille

Published by Laurent P. · Published on 26 March 2019 at 16h31
From September 27 to October 15, 2019 Paris Opéra Bastille offers several performances of Les Indes Galantes an opera-ballet by Jean-Philippe Rameau.

This is the occasion to discover a major work… From September 27 to October 15, 2019 Paris Opéra Bastille offers several performances of one of the main operas of the Enlightenment by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Les Indes Galantes. A “sparkling entertainment” and Rameau’s first opera-ballet showing the ambiguous view held by a European about other peoples (Turks, Incas, Persians, ‘Savages’…)

An opera-ballet staged by Clément Cogitore already made in 2017 an “explosive and critically acclaimed” movie adaptation. As for the choreography, the director called in Bintou Dembélé, one of the hip hop pioneers in France. Including five acts (a prolog and four acts), Les Indes Galantes invites the audience to discover different stories about several “civilizations”. A sort of Persian Letters but the other way around, a fantastic and poetic machinery offering an unforgettable journey outside Europe, on a discovery of lands and traditions and revealing various life stories.

The occasion to discover a work rather unknown by the general public and to enjoy the prolog – the perfect example of composition in the best Lully tradition including harpsichord and all that goes with it. Let’s have a night at the Opera, friends, shall we?
