Jean-Philippe Rameau

Platée

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

Libretto by Adrien-Joseph
Le Valois d’Orville


in French with English and German surtitles
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.
