Les Arts Florissants by Charpentier – 8 October

Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s renowned chamber opera Les Arts Florissants returns to Dallas after a 20 year hiatus, in collaboration with the New York Baroque Dance Company. Written to celebrate the return of peace to Europe (probably referring to the defeat of the Turks at the Gates of Vienna in 1683) this charming and profound work celebrates the return of the Arts of Music, Poetry, Painting, and Architecture, flourishing under the reign of Peace, who has triumphed over Discord, through the glory of the Sun King, Louis XIV.
