Rameau's Les Fêtes de l'Hymen et de l'Amour, ou Les Dieux d'Égypte

Opera Lafayette opens its 20th season with the modern staged premiere of the last of Rameau’s large-scale opéras-ballets to be revived and performed in recent times. Three critically acclaimed dance companies – representing Egyptians, Amazons, and Gods of the Nile – weave this romantic tale into seven magnificent ballets, complementing the musicality of cast and chorus.
