Opera de Paris: Platée

OPERA - A nymph reigning over a watery empire” or an “absurd Naiad”? Who exactly is Rameau’s strange creature sung by a countertenor (a vocal range often associated with fresh, young heroines) and who shatters the conventions of opera? The ugly frog Platée (Lawrence Brownlee), convinced of her own beauty, is the victim of a machination of the gods of Olympus who make her believe that she’s loved by Jupiter (Jean Teitgen). A jewel of French opera, this cruel yet moving farce returns to the stage in a delightfully whimsical and joyful production by Laurent Pelly. Renowned Baroque specialist Marc Minowski conducts his Orchestre les Musiciens du Louvre and a fantastic cast.
