When Rameau died in 1764, the Mercure de France concluded its obituary with the words ‘Here lies the God of Harmony’. In many ways he defined eighteenth-century French music, publishing his widely influential Treaty on Harmony in 1722.
Hippolyte et Aricie was Rameau’s first work for the stage, written when he was nearly 50 and it is also Glyndebourne’s first production of an opera by Rameau.
This is a cinema-style screening of a performance.
