J. P. Rameau: Platée / Paul Agnew, Mireille Delunsch, Yann Beuron, Vincent Le Texier. Paris National Opera, Marc Minkowski [Blu-Ray]

Notes & Reviews:

The creative team that triumphed with the Théâtre du Châtelet production of Offenbach's La Belle Hélène, turned their talents to Platée in this Opéra de Paris staging, premièred in 1999 to great acclaim and reprised in 2002, when this recording of Rameau's Platée, a burlesque on the vicissitudes of love in which the composer also thumbed his nose at the sacrosanct rules of 18th c. French opera was staged at the opulent Palais Garnier. Marc Minkowski conducted the excellent Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble. ... a "pure joy from start to splashing finish" (Wall Street Journal Europe).
