Boston Early Music Chamber Opera Series Presented by RK Cultural Productions

The GRAMMY-winning BEMF Chamber Opera Series makes its Florida debut on November 30, 2022, with a Double Bill of French Baroque chamber operas written for Louis XIV: Lully’s Idylle sur la Paix and Charpentier’s La Fête de Rueil.

The genius of Charpentier and Lully raises these formal tributes to musical masterpieces where dazzling singing combines with charming dances in a vivid depiction of the people’s desire for peace.

This all-new production is led by BEMF’s GRAMMY-winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed Stage Director Gilbert Blin and features an all-star roster of 26 singers, dancers, and instrumentalists
