Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre, 616 St Peter St, New Orleans, LA 70116, USA

The court of Louis XIV, the “Sun King,” was known for its richness and splendor that extended to the arts and architecture as well. Jean-Philippe Rameau, one of the greatest of the French Baroque composers of opera, turned to the Greek mythological subject of the renowned sculptor, Pygmalion, who carved an ivory statue of a woman so beautiful that he fell in love with it. Pygmalion appealed to the goddess Venus to bring his statue to life and his wish was granted. The second half of our French Baroque evening will feature eight colorful selections by the leading 18th-century composers: Lully, Campra, Charpentier, Marais, and Rameau that showcase our soloists, dancers, and orchestra, complemented by scenic design elements that utilize paintings drawn from the New Orleans Museum of Art’s exhibition of the Duke of Orleans celebrated art collection. Join us at Le Petit Theatre for this musical feast!
