Description

This attractive one-act ballet, premièred at the theater in Fontainebleau in 1754, has never appeared in print, and the incomplete source material made it necessary to attempt a painstaking scholarly reconstruction. As always, Rameau presents a series of brilliant and challenging ariettas, choruses and dance numbers.

This edition allows performers at last to appreciate the remarkable quality of this music.
