Apotheosis treat us to two versions of this famous myth

 With Cupid's help, sculptor Pygmalion brings his beloved creation to life. Rameau's best-known one-acter Pigmalion, with a new choreography by Femke Gyselinck, is followed by Georg Benda’s little-known gem of the same name: an exhilarating monodrama for speaking voice and orchestra.
