An Imaginary Opera – Le Concert Spirituel & Hervé Niquet At The Royal Opera Of Versailles
Taking 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... including the famous passages from Lully's Armide and Charpentier's Medea. From Marin Marais' Sémélé (The Earthquake) to Campra's Le Carnaval de Venise. All the magic of Louis XIV's French opera bursting with unexpected pearls and discoveries!
