Zilkha Hall / Hobby Center For The Performing Arts

Our season opener features a full Baroque orchestra of strings and winds plus the New York Baroque Dance Company, in a program of instrumental suites from two vibrantly colorful French Baroque operas, both first seen at the Palais-Royal in Paris. Period choreography and period instruments recreate a refined artform that was de rigueur throughout Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries.

  • André Campra, Suite from Hésione (ed. John Powell)

  • Jean-Philippe Rameau, Suites from Les Indes Galantes


Artist Reviews

Turocy is deemed to be the leading specialist for the reconstruction of historical performance practices, especially for choreography. This is not only seen in every moment of this production but also that each moment greatly profits from this knowledge.” -, Zuruck
