OPERA LAFAYETTE ORCHESTRA

Opera Lafayette is an American period-instrument ensemble that specializes in French repertoire, rediscovers masterpieces, and creates a recorded legacy of its work. Founded in 1995 in Washington, DC, by Conductor and Artistic Director Ryan Brown, Opera Lafayette has earned critical acclaim and a loyal following for its performances and recordings with international singers renowned for their interpretations of baroque and classical operas. Opera Lafayette’s season includes performances at major venues in Washington, DC and New York City. At the invitation of Château de Versailles Spectacles, Opera Lafayette made its international début at the Opéra Royal in February 2012 with the modern world première of Monsigny’s Le Roi et le fermier. Opera Lafayette recently returned to Versailles for five sold-out performances of Mozart’s Così fan tutte and Philidor’s Les Femmes Vengées in January and February of 2014. Opera Lafayette’s discography on the Naxos label has expanded to ten releases, including Gluck’s Orphée et Euridice (2005), Sacchini’s Œdipe à Colone (2006), Rameau Operatic Arias (2007), Lully’s Armide (2008), Rebel and Francoeur’s Zélindor, roi des Sylphes (2009), Monsigny’s Le Déserteur (2010), Philidor’s Sancho Pança (2011) Grétry’s Le magnifique (2012), Monsigny’s Le Roi et le fermier and Félicien David’s Lalla Roukh (2014).
