Multi-Media Spectacle = A Tombola Of Different Styles & Techniques...
27 May 2007 | by (Weesp) – See all my reviews

What a feast this production is ! Completely in touch with the Barock era it searches for the excessive and the grandeur, and boy, did they find it here !

Wat a treat for the eyes, what an explosion of colour and movement !!

Again an opera coming from the Chatelet theatre, which gave us already the fabulous Rameau 'Les Indes Galantes', the wonderful Janacek 'The Cunning Little Vixen' and many others; it is almost as if Chatelet stands for a few hours of 'FEEL GOOD ENTERTAINMENT'.

Because FUN it is. As star Laurent Naouri points out: 'Le Plaisir' / FUN is the keyword in Rameau's oeuvre.

This spectacle will have you sitting up in front of your screen with a smile on your face all the time. The only regret you might have is that you only have one pair of eyes; The exuberance and pleasure occurs in three layers simultaneously.

The interaction between live action and video-performance, between singers and dancers (again from very many different backgrounds) AND from single persons with themselves (thanks to those video-performances) is quite simply breathtakingly beautiful.

What a great day we had watching this Jose Montalvo-production; and the 1-hour long 'making of' called 'Barock That Rocks', which is to be found on the Art House DVD, did indeed live up to the expectations which the treat for eyes & ears had set.
