Homage to the Sun King

  • HOBBY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS 800 Bagby St Houston, TX, 77002 United States (map)

Ars Lyrica’s Homage to the Sun King comes exactly 300 years after his light finally faded in 1715. This program features Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s sparkling chamber opera Les arts florissants plus royal motets and chamber works by Jean-Baptiste Lully, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and François Couperin. It’s a rare opportunity to savor French Baroque masterworks in full historical dress, with instruments and dance steps from the Ancien Régime.
