First Performances at New Orleans Opera of Jean-Philippe Rameau's Pygmalion using a New Critical Edition

Nov. 01, 2018

First Performances at New Orleans Opera of Jean-Philippe Rameau's <em>Pygmalion</em> using a New Critical Edition

On November 8-11, the New Orleans Opera presents Jean-Philippe Rameau's Pygmalion as part of an evening of French Baroque opera, featuring selections of artwork from the New Orleans Museum of Art and performances by Marigny Opera Ballet Company. This production, directed by Brenna Corner and featuring the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, will use the new Bärenreiter Urtext edition, part of the Opera omnia Rameau (OOR) series. The OOR explores and discusses every known musical, literary and iconographic source of Rameau's works. All of the composer's stage works will eventually be published with vocal scores (on sale) and performance material (on hire). Following the New Orleans Opera's performance of Pygmalion, the second half of the program will consist of dramatic scenes from a variety of works by composers of the French Baroque, including Rameau (scenes from Les indes Galantes), as well as Lully, Charpentier, and Marin Marais.
