Rameau and the SceneSold by Opéra National de Paris
DescriptionIn 2014 is the 250th anniversary of the death of Jean-Philippe Rameau, a musician of genius who fell into total oblivion in the 19th century and whose operas have been rediscovered over the last fifty years, giving rise to sumptuous productions that have met with great success (e.g. Les Indes galantes at the Paris Opera in 2003, Platée at the Paris Opera in 2009, Les Boréades at Versailles in 2014).
An exhibition on Rameau and the Stage will open at the Palais Garnier on 15 December 2014, presenting sets and costumes, scores and manuscripts. On this occasion, the Opera and the BnF are producing an exhibition catalogue.
The catalogue presents all of Rameau's operas (Hippolyte et Aricie, Les Indes galantes, Castor et Pollux, Dardanus, Platée, Les Boréades.) as well as studies written by two specialists (Elizabeth Giuliani and Mathias Auclair) and interviews with three leading figures on the French opera scene: conductor Christophe Rousset, director Jean-Marie Villégier and tenor Jean-Paul Fouchécourt.
