OAE: Dangerous Liaisons

Part of Classical Season

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment recreates the sounds of Versailles, blending elegant French dance from the court of Louis XIV with greatest hits of French music from the era.

Mixing the best of Lully, Rameau, Campra, Charpentier and more, this is a golden jukebox of French baroque, accompanied by authentically choreographed dance as would have been seen in the Royal palaces of the 17th century.

Together the music and dance tell a story bringing together characters from Orfeo, Acis and Galatea and other well-known classical stories. Think Into the Woods, but for Greek myth.

The dance is choreographed by Hubert Hazebroucq, star of the BBC film about Louis XIV, The King Who Invented Ballet.

Meanwhile, the OAE uses augmented reality technology to enhance the experience for audience members looking for an even more dangerous liaison.
