Opera Atelier will travel to Versailles in 2014 with its production of Persée: the first time the opera will play on the stage of the Royal Opera House there since 1770

Barihunk Quartet in Opera Atelier's Persée  

Opera Atelier has revived their critically acclaimed production of Lully’s Persée with four barihunks in the cast: Olivier Laquerre as Méduse, Vasil Garvanliev as Phinèe, Stephen Hegedus as Protenor/Divinite Infernale and Curtis Sullivan as Cyclope.

The company first staged the production in 2000, which was the opera's first fully staged production since it inaugurated the Royal Opera House at Versailles in 1770 during the wedding celebrations of the future King Louis XVI to Marie Antoinette. Their 2004 revival of Persée was the subject of a documentary.

The Royal Opera House has invited Opera Atelier to bring Persée back to Versailles for the first time  since the 1770 performances. It will be performed on May 23, 24, and 25 after the current run at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto. There are performances tonight, as well as May 2 and 3.  You can also catch Stephen Hegedus performing Bach’s Magnificat and Bruckner’s Te Deum

Opera Atelier returns to Versailles with Persée

Opera Atelier’s 2013/14 season includes Lully’s Persée and Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio

Opera Atelier will travel to Versailles in 2014 with its production of Persée: the first time the opera will play on the stage of the Royal Opera House there since 1770.

Co-artistic directors Marshall Pynkoski and Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg announced Tuesday that Persée will be part of Atelier’s 2013/14 season here in Toronto (April 26 to May 3, 2014) along with the return of The Abduction from the Seraglio (Oct. 26 to Nov. 2, 2013).

Persée will travel to Versailles May, 23, 24 and 25.

After a triumphant visit to Versailles with its production of Armide last season, Pynkoski is thrilled with the return engagement. Persée, written for the marriage of Marie Antoinette and the future King Louis XVI, is a retelling of the Greek Perseus myth.

“It was a crowning achievement of French music that celebrated the marriage of the century,” says Pynkoski.

But after the French Revolution, royal excess fell into disrepute and the work languished for centuries.

Pynkoski found out about the Lully composition a couple of years ago while working with French music researchers who were unearthing forgotten Baroque pieces. It is expensive to mount; Atelier’s first production of Persée in 2000 “was our first million-dollar production,” says Pynkoski, adding that it involved “machinery, costumes and music rarely played.”

The trip to Versailles means that Atelier can add more visuals to Persée, which it last performed in 2004.

Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio will have more effects and costumes, too, says Pynkoski.

As with The Magic Flute, being staged this spring, Atelier is reaching out to families with special pricing and promotions.
