Description

The King’s Ballet
Les Elements, by Delalande & Destouches
Ensemble Les Surprises, One of the 10 revelations of the decade !

Come and listen to the rising star of Baroque music : Ensemble Les Surprises for their only concert in Asia this year.

Les Surprises, conducted by Louis-Noel Bestion de Camboulas will be playing Les Elements, which was created in Paris in 1721 and soon became French King Louis 15's favorite opera.
The Elements and Chaos are themes that strongly influenced opera composers in the 17th and 18th centuries. Thus in 1721, was created at the Palais des Tuileries in Paris, Les Elements, opera-ballet by Michel-Richard Delalande and Andre Cardinal Destouches, with the exceptional participation in the dance of the young king of France Louis XV, then eleven years old, and all the “young lords of the royal Court “.

This opera-ballet was a great success and had a very strong influence throughout the whole century, since it will be replayed in Paris, Versailles, and Fontainebleau until 1781.

Operas written for the court of the King were then performed in a smaller format as « opera de salon » or chamber operas throughout the country.

Louis-Nicolas Bestion de Camboulas conductor of the Ensemble Les Surprises has re-created a salon version of Delalande and Destouches’ opera with a new sense of dramaturgy that illustrates closely Chaos, Air, Fire, Earth and Water.
