And what if Rousseau’s Devin du Village has been waiting just for you for two centuries at the The Queen’s Theatre at the Petit Trianon?

On September 19th 1780, Marie-Antoinette was on stage, in costume, and was acting with her troop of aristocrats in front of a public of close friends. That evening, she was interpreting the role of Colette, the heroine of this one act opera composed in 1753 by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (yes, the philosopher!) perhaps the most celebrated work of its time.

That exceptional evening, a veritable fantasy of the Queen’s who imagined that she was a shepherdess, has been resuscitated under the direction of Sébastien d’Hérin in a costumed reconstitution, staged in the original historic sets!

A Bonus DVD of the complete performance accompanies this recording.

Performance created and recorded at the Queen's Theatre of the Palace of Versailles, on July 1st and 2nd 2017.
