Les Voyages de l'Amour: A Night of French Opera in 1736

3PM, Bailey Hall
The New York Baroque Dance Company will perform in a staged performance of two excerpts from opera-ballets by André Campra and Jean-Philippe Rameau, respectively, "L'Espagne" from L'Europe galante (1697) and "Les Sauvages" from Les Indes galantes (1736). Choreography will be created by Catherine Turocy, director of the New York Baroque Dance Company, and will be performed by members of the troupe and Cornell students.

The performance will be preceded by lectures that contextualize the works for a modern audience.  An exhibition related to the operas is being planned with collaboration with the Department of Comparative Literature and Kroch Library.  Rebecca Harris-Warrick, professor in Music, is the organizer of this project with assistance from Mat Langlois, PhD candidate in Musicology.
