19:00 Introduction & encounter with Hervé Niquet, moderated by Charles-Henry Boland (FR) - Salon Ovale
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Le Concert Spirituel music ensemble, Hervé Niquet has produced an "imaginary opera", comprising some of the most splendid Baroque operas composed by Rameau, Lully, Marais and many others. A lavish production that has no qualms about using digital technology, relying on “3D video to create a whole array of fantastic visions that have kept people dreaming, young and old alike, ever since the opera was invented”, says the French conductor.
