The American Friends of the Paris Opera & Ballet is delighted to renew the Paris Opera & Ballet HD Screening series in partnership with the French Institute Alliance Française for the 3rd edition in a row.
This year, we are thrilled to invite you to discover the triumphant new production of the Paris Opera 19/20 season presented this past September: „Les Indes Galantes“, by Rameau and directed by Clement Cogitore.
Visionary artist and filmmaker Clément Cogitore breathes new life into Jean-Philippe Rameau’s first opera-ballet in this audacious reimagining of the Baroque masterpiece.
With choreography by French hip-hop eminence Bintou Dembélé, this acclaimed production resets Rameau’s musical delights within an urban and political space that both honors the opera while challenging the Euro-centric views of the „other.“
This highly anticipated production was chosen by The New York Times as one of the 10 best classical music performances of 2019.
US Premiere: Opera-ballet in four acts and a prologue (1735). In French, with English subtitles. Approx. 3 hours and 30 minutes including introduction and one intermission.
Coffee, tea, and cookies will be served during the intermission.
Advance tickets highly recommended (photo © Little Shao / OnP.)
