Les Arts Florissants in the United States

By Francerocks

Celebrated conductor William Christie and his acclaimed early-music ensemble Les Arts Florissants explore the hedonistic side of the French Baroque with the rarely staged opéra-ballet Les Fêtes Vénitiennes, by André Campra (1660-1744), famed successor to composer Jean-Baptiste Lully. Gamblers, carnies, gypsies, and jilted lovers—baring lots of leg via scanty updates on period dress—populate a series of stories in this crimson-hued carnival of courtly music, dance from Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, and Venetian decadence, originally conceived in the anti-authoritarian ferment surrounding the Sun King Louis XIV’s final days. Play-within-a-play plot devices, melodies borrowed from Lully’s opera Atys, gliding gondolas, and dancing sheep round out Campra’s whimsical nod to French libertinism. They will perform in New York at the Guggenheim on April 11th and the Brooklyn Academy of Music from April 14th through 17th, as well as select dates around the country.
