Opera Lafayette
La Muse de l’Opéra

A recital with orchestra featuring the brilliant young Dutch soprano Judith van Wanroij. Ms. van Wanroij sings La Muse de l’Opéra by Clérambault, a virtuoso miniature which calls forth in quick succession the many contrasting moods and natural phenomena of classic French lyric tragedy – fanfare, hunt, pastorale, tempest, birdsong, enchanted sleep, and the infernal. She and the Opera Lafayette Orchestra then alternate several magnificent airs, including Télaïre’s ‘Tristes apprêts’ from Rameau’s Castor et Pollux, with the composer’s vivacious and imaginative dances from this and other operas.

Pre-performance talk at 6:30 in the South Opera Tier Lounge.
