RAMEAU, J.P.: Boréades (Les) (Paris National Opera, 2003) (NTSC)

Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683 -1764)

Barbara Bonney, Paul Agnew, Laurent Naouri
Les Arts Florissants, William Christie
featuring La La La Human Steps

Director Robert Carsen and his creative team flood the stage with summer blossoms, drifts of autumn leaves, winter snows and thunderous spring storms. The cast of 140 are attired in elegant costumes inspired by late 1940s Dior.

This mythical tale of a young queen, Alphise, determined to abdicate rather than contemplate an enforced marriage to a descendant of Boreas, is nothing less than highly-charged.
