A celebration of the marvellous and of illusion, a prerogative of the Baroque, this re-creation of Lully's opera, dedicated to the son of the Sun, enchants us with its costumes between the Baroque and the contemporary, its singular and striking make-up, and its original phrasing restored, en bon françois!

Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

This is the story of Phaéton, valiant driver of the Sun's chariot, led here by Vincent Dumestre and Benjamin Lazar, armed with a rich acquaintance of two decades of Lullyist cooperation. Just like at the time, they make the Versailles Opera resonate with this flamboyant lyrical tragedy, which was first presented in Perm in Russia in 2018.

Filmed in June 2018 at the Royal Opera of Versailles.
