By Marc-Antoine Charpentier
Les Arts Florissants
An Aix-en-Provence Festival production
Conducted by William Christie
Directed by Andreas Homoki
Featuring Charpentier’s stately choruses, dances, and airs, this Baroque gem unfolds with Christie’s trademark rhetorical flair. Melodies heave and sigh with gossamer elegance, transforming an Old Testament parable into a ravishing musical account of incorruptible love, undying to the end.
