HERVÉ NIQUET - Artists' stories


Here comes the most unpredictable of all Versailles’s guests: defending in turn the most forgotten repertoires, such as Benevolo’s splendid Missa di San Luigi dei Francesi, set in space, or plunged in Purcell’s magnificent repertoire for the Queen of England, this year Hervé Niquet is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Concert Spirituel with an Opéra Imaginaire, assembling the most beautiful pages of French opera – but also the most piquant, the most furious, the most preposterous! With the verve he deployed in King Arthur and Don Quichotte, we can expect a season of “miracles in Versailles”, interspersed with the surprises that wonderfully enliven his musical discourse!
