AtHENS & EPIdaURuS FESTIVAL 2010 | Megaron Mousikis |

Jean Philippe Rameau, Pygmalion

William Christie and Les Arts Florissants are celebrating thirty years of service to the Baroque revival with new productions of  two jewels from Rameau’s exceptional oeuvre: the one-act acte de ballet Pygmalion, and extracts from Hippolyte et Aricie. Co-produced by the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Holland Festival, Athens Festival and the Teatro Real (Madrid), the production combines the exploratory spirit of  William Christie and Les Arts Florissants orchestra and chorus with the innovation of American choreographer Trisha Brown and her company to great effect.
