Pleasure is on Opera Lafayette’s menu for the first performance of the 2016-2017 season. Tenor Jean-Paul Fouchécourt, universally acknowledged as one of the foremost interpreters of the French baroque repertoire, invites you to journey with him through music from the 17th to the 20th-century. Watch as he magically transforms from one character into another, and revel as this showman performs songs and arias he has made famous throughout the world, including on Opera Lafayette’s stages and recordings.
