About this concert

For the first of our three collaborations with the BBC Singers this season, we welcome their newly-appointed Chief Conductor, Sofi Jeannin, in a programme of glorious music for the 18th-century royal stage by Rameau and Lully.

At the London performance we are joined by the Aakash Odedra Company –a group of dancers giving a vibrant and contemporary interpretation of the dances of Rameau. They originally collaborated with the BBC Singers for the critically-acclaimed performances of Ravi Shankar’s opera Sukanya and this promises to be an unforgettable partnership.
