Two remarkable young singers.
William Christie, a leading light in the resurgence of baroque music, honours the Grand Théâtre with his exceptional presence.
As the founder and leader of the ensemble Les Arts Florissants, he has travelled the world over, to the delight of public and critics alike, performing works from the 17th and 18th centuries.
He will be joined by two remarkable young singers: the warm, lively voice of mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre, baroque opera’s newest muse, and the Polish countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński, who, according to the New York Times combines “beauty of tone and an uncommon unity of color and polish across his range”. Together, they have put together a baroque pasticcio of a programme of the most beautiful airs from Scarlatti, Purcell, Handel, Rameau and Mozart.
