-- Theatre reviews

Composed by Jean Baptiste Lully for Louis XIV, Persée is widely recognized as Lully's greatest creation and was considered the crowning achievement of 17th century French music theatre.

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir are leading specialists in early music with an excellent reputation in the record market.

A dazzling spectacle of gods and goddesses, flying machines and monsters with dancing, fight scenes and special effects
Stage production was inspired by designs from the original 17th century production.

More than half a century after its premiere, Persée was chosen by Louis XV to open the new Royal Opera House at the Chateau de Versailles, in celebration of the wedding of Marie Antoinette and the future Louis XVI
Brand new recording - state-of-the-art quality
