Grand Théatre de GenèveGrand Théâtre de Genève
When Jean-Philippe Rameau composed Les Indes galantes in 1735, most faraway shores were known as “The Indies” and the “gallantry” in the opera’s title has more to do with things erotic than simply holding the door open for ladies. Exotic and erotic adventures are the common theme of this opéra-ballet, whose vocal parts are liberally laced with dance numbers. Four successive tableaux take us to distant parts of the world, each the setting of an erotic conflict between the “conquered” indigenous and their “conquerors”. For the first ever staging of a Rameau opera in its history, the Grand Théâtre has called on US-born director Lydia Steier, who made the headlines with her Magic Flute at the Salzburg festival in 2018. She will raise the curtain on a conflict between the adepts of free libertine love and the proponents of much stricter morals, that takes place in different countries with devastating consequences until there is nothing more to do except work together on a new community of nations. Leonardo García Alarcón and his Cappella Mediterranea will help these Indes galantes sing and dance, as they pursue their brilliant inroad into the French baroque repertoire.
