Opéra comique about Cervantes' legendary knight errant

Who better to open this amazing festival edition than Don Quixote? After overdosing on courtly literature, Cervantes' nobleman imagines himself to be a knight errant. During the Enlightenment, the adventures of this legendary adventurer were exceptionally popular. For carnival 1743, Joseph Bodin de Boismortier transformed this masterpiece into an opéra comique. Freedom reigns supreme in both its bold libretto and its irresistible score. Inventive airs, catchy dances and rousing choruses: this is music that makes you happy. 27 years ago, Don Quichotte chez la Duchesse was the first work ever performed by flamboyant conductor Hervé Niquet and his Concert Spirituel, They now return to their roots with an exhilarating update.
