Event description

Description

An evening to celebrate the glory of Louis XIV and the greatest royal court of the 17th-Century.

Marc-Antoine Chapentier’s opera Les plaisirs de Versailles (The Pleasures of Versailles) premiered in 1682 at the exclusive Les appartements du roi (King’s Receptions). In it the characters “Music”, “Gambling”, “Pleasure” and “Conversation” praise the King and help him relax after coming back from his wars. Jean-Baptiste Lully’s earlier 1657 ballet L’amour malade (Love Illness) features Louis as principal dancer, telling the story of his battle with love-sickness and eventual revival through entertainment.

Repertoire:
Marc-Antoine Charpentier: Les plaisirs de Versailles
Jean-Baptiste Lully: L’amour malade

Ticket price includes one complimentary alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage.
