Our final program of the 2017-2018 season is a musical journey through the reigns of Louis XIV, XV, and XVI, featuring music from Lully’s Acis et Galatée to Grétry’s Richard, Cœur de Lion, inspired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition Visitors to Versailles (1682 – 1789), on view at The Met Fifth Avenue April 16–July 29, 2018. This concert features four very special artists: soprano Rosa Lamoreaux; mezzo-soprano Anna Reinhold (Marcia in Catone in Utica); tenor Aaron Sheehan (in the title role of 2012-2013’s Actéon by Charpentier); and baritone Victor Sicard (Adario in Les Indes Galantes).
