WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Opera Lafayette continues its exploration and rediscovery of the repertoire of the Opéra Comique in Paris, venturing into the 19th century to present the modern premiere of Félicien David's important musical landmark of the orientalist movement, based on the poem by Irish poet Thomas Moore. David's lush and inventive score, which frames a story set on the road from Delhi to Samarkand, was considered his masterpiece and held the Paris stage for twenty years after its debut in 1862. Opera Lafayette's revival features a collaboration with Kalanidhi Dance which will bring a ravishing visual element to the ballets that accompany this opera's captivating melodies and elaborate ensembles. The production is directed by Bernard Deletré, with lighting by Colin K. Bills, and costumes by Indian fashion designer Poonam Bhagat.
