Details on the Performance

A king imprisoned, his knights who want to deliver him and sing their fidelity, a famous air "O Richard O my King" sung in the Royal Opera by the Guards of the Body of Louis XVI at their banquet October 1, 1789, for salute Marie-Antoinette and the King, unleashing vindictiveness and bringing the crowd to Versailles, which forces the royal family to leave the castle on October 6 to never come back ... It's the end of Versailles and its Royal Opera . To celebrate his two hundred and fifty years, here is the return to the scene of the famous Richard the Lionheart (1784) Grétry, the most famous French comic opera of the eighteenth century in Europe for a century ... gone plateaus for decades!

Hervé Niquet and Marshall Pynkoski tackle this doubly historical task. If Grétry was the most appreciated composer of Marie-Antoinette, her "Richard" is at the same time the culmination of a career, the announcement of an artistic style that romanticism will seize, but also the powerful historical mark of a finishing time. Here is the opportunity to bring back the opera in the great History of Versailles and France. And here is also the first integral production of the Royal Opera of Versailles since 1789!
