The GRAMMY Award–winning BEMF Chamber Opera Series returns with an encore performance of our November 2016 production inspired by the splendor of Versailles. King Louis XIV transformed his father’s pastoral hunting lodge at Versailles into a lavish palace that served as the seat of government and culture in France. Enjoy a musical feast from the height of the Sun King’s reign with two chamber operas—Charpentier’s Les Plaisirs de Versailles and Lalande’s Les Fontaines de Versailles—exalting the splendor and majesty of the palace and its gardens, alongside divertissements from Lully’s Atys—called the “King’s Opera” for the favor it enjoyed with Louis XIV. The refined elegance and expressive drama is brought to life by the all-star BEMF Vocal and Chamber Ensembles in a magnificent production featuring gorgeous costumes, Baroque dance, and sumptuous staging.
