Shirley and Dino take on Rameau’s masterpiece

When Rameau composed his colourful Platée a fable as amusing as it is cruel, was he aware that he was giving the world a score rich, flamboyant and replete with acerbic humour, yet also possessing a fearsome universality? Whatever the case, he shattered all the codes and conventions of his times. That is certainly what Shirley and Dino hope to do with their long-time partner Hervé Niquet, a true specialist of the repertoire, seeking out and rediscovering all the larger–than–life colour – and topicality – of the story of the frog who deemed herself worthy of sharing the bed of the god of gods.
