Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following an initial reconstruction on disc in 2015, Charpentier’s Ballet Royal de la Nuit enjoyed a triumphant modern premiere at the Théâtre de Caen in November 2017.

The meticulous reconstitution by Sébastien Daucé, incomparable poetry of Francesca Lattuada and dreamlike universe created by Olivier Charpentier's costuming combine to produce an incredible enchantment - further enhanced by virtuoso jugglers and circus artists that can be enjoyed on the bonus DVD.
