Project Description

Back to Lully

Véronique Gens, soprano

Ensemble Les Surprises Choir and Orchestra

Conceived in the style of an imaginary opera for a soloist, an orchestra and a choir, this concert celebrates the French music of Lully, his successors and rivals, through known and unpublished pages. Véronique Gens, an internationally recognized soloist, wished to sign a return to the French baroque repertoire, which is dear to her and in which she made her debut. This creation will give rise to a concert tour and a recording to be released on the Alpha label.

Coproduction Centre de musique baroque de Versailles / Festival Sinfonia en Périgord / Ensemble Les Surprises

Created with the support of  Mécénat Musical Société Générale
