Versailles: Portrait of a Royal Domain

King Louis XIV transformed his father’s pastoral hunting lodge at Versailles into a lavish palace that served as the seat of government and culture in France. Enjoy a musical feast with two chamber operas exalting the splendor and majesty of the palace and its gardens, alongside divertissements from Atys. The refined elegance and expressive drama is brought to life by the all-star BEMF Vocal and Chamber Ensembles in a production featuring gorgeous costumes, Baroque dance, and sumptuous staging.

Produced in collaboration with the Boston Early Music Festival, in partnership with the Centre de Musique Baroque Versailles.
