Jean-Philippe Rameau

Platée

Jean-Philippe Rameau
Ballet bouffon in a prologue and three acts

Libretto by Adrien-Joseph
Le Valois d’Orville


sung in French
Juno is outraged by her husband Jupiter's constant love affairs. To prove to Juno that her jealousy is unfounded, Jupiter decides to play a trick on her: He begins to court and flatter the nymph Platée who is as narcissistic as she is ugly.

With the help of instrumental tricks Jean-Philippe Rameau’s musical score acoustically makes the most of the comical situations thus being a paradigm of baroque musical humour.
