Les Plaisirs de Versailles

  • The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts 800 Bagby Street Houston, TX, 77002 United States (map)

Ars Lyrica's 2016/17 season opens with a trip to Versailles, where French kings and their courtiers cultivated pleasures of all kinds, including musical follies. Charpentier's witty chamber opera pairs nicely with motets, drinking songs, and chamber works by François Couperin & Jean-Philippe Rameau, for a sumptuous and quintessentially French musical feast. Unusually for its era, Les Plaisirs de Versailles is a comedy — and an ode to both wine and chocolate!
