Marais, Marin - Alcione - Tragedie Lyrique (1706)
Le Concert Des Nations
The last great “tragedy in music” of the reign of Louis XIV, Alcione, is a total spectacle at the crossroads of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, from which it takes the mythological source, its praise of the sovereign’s glory, and the literary requirement to combine choreography and stage movements. Jordi Savall, rediscoverer of Marais’ work, brings this creative freedom back to life for Alcione’s first stage production in Paris since 1771. Booklet in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Catalan.
