William Christie and Les Arts Florissants propel this exuberant production of Jean-Philippe Rameau's second opera to great heights. Andrei Serban's extravagant, highly baroque staging presents the four exotic love stories in a fantastic operatic spectacle. Described as an Opera-Ballet in four Acts, Les Indes Galantes was Rameau's biggest stage success in his own lifetime, and one can understand why from this spectacular production, staged at the Paris Opéra in 2004. Anna Maria Panzarella as Emilie and Paul Agnew as Valere, with Joao Fernandez memorably in drag as Bellone. Production Company: Opéra national de Paris Stage Director: Andrei Serban.
Les Arts Florissants is a Baroque musical ensemble in residence at the Théâtre de Caen in Caen, France. The organization was founded by conductor William Christie in 1979. The ensemble derives its name from the 1685 opera by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. The organization consists of a chamber orchestra of period instruments and a small vocal ensemble. Current notable members include soprano Danielle de Niese and tenor Paul Agnew, who has served as assistant conductor since 2007
For William Christie, founder of Les Arts Florissants: "Rameau is certainly the most important dance composer before Stravinsky. At the end of this glorious Indes Galantes we have a rather extraordinary piece called La Danse du Grand Calumet, and since we've revived this work – and we've done it 40 or 50 times, maybe – the effect that it has on an audience is absolutely guaranteed. I can look out and watch the audience starting to move.

Jean-Philippe Rameau; Les Arts Florissants, William Christie.
Jean-Philippe Rameau, the Dijon-born theorist, keyboardist and composer is the greatest French composer of the entire Baroque era, though he did not produce his first opera, Hippolyte et Aricie (1733), until he was 50. His mature career spanned three decades, during which he mastered and innovated distinctly French operatic genres such as the serious tragédie en musique (Hippolyte et Aricie, Dardanus, Les Boréades), charmingly diverse opéra-ballet (Les Indes galantes, Les fêtes d’Hébé) and witty comédie lyrique (Les paladins). However, it is not healthy for William Christie to inadvertently acquire hegemony, so my selection is designed to allow a broad cross-section of Rameau’s genius in different genres, all performed outstandingly by several generations of performers: the vanguard, the consolidators and the newcomers.
