Jean-Philippe Rameau: Les Paladins
Baroque that Rocks
Dominique Hervieu, José Montalvo found in the work of Rameau a unique opportunity to create a choreography with an extreme originality, combining baroque codes with creative videos full of humor. The singers (Topi Lehtippu, Stéphanie d'Oustrac, Sandrine Piau, Piolino François, Laurent Naouri, René Schirrer) also take part into the dance and into the festivities, and we are given a great opportuiny to watch a show which is full of surprises.
In this documentary, we can listen to the testimonies of the singers, choreographers or of the conductor William Christie. All have joined this very unusual project, to our delight.
