About

Opera in four acts and a prologue

Music Jean-Philippe Rameau Libretto Louis Fuzelier

This landmark work, rediscovered in the 20th century, has left its mark on the history of Opera. Les Indes galantes might appear to be a dazzling entertainment. However, Rameau’s opera-ballet also manifests an ambiguous humanism: the European view of Otherness – Turkish, Inca, Persian or Savage – is constantly divided between fantasy and a form of fascination with the exotic. In 2017, director Clement Cogitore made an explosive and highly acclaimed film adapting an extract from Les Indes galantes in collaboration with exponents of Krump dance. Exploring the subjugating power of that box of delights, he takes up the work in its entirety this time, transposing it to an urban and political space whose boundaries he examines.
