    Boston Baroque presents Rameau's Les Indes Galantes

    We close with Rameau’s brilliant but rarely heard Opera, Les Indes Galantes. With daring harmonies and remarkable orchestral color, Rameau depicts tales of love from four “exotic” cultures: The Gracious Turk, The Incas of Peru, The Flowers (set in Persia), and The Savages of America. This ambitious production continues Boston Baroque’s exploration of the evocative repertoire of the French Baroque. Introduction at 6:30...

      During my short stay in Boston at the beginning of May, I attended the May 7th presentation of Les Indes galantes. I had seen this opera in Montréal, 20 or 30 years ago by le Théâtre de la Monnaie... Expand
