Psyche, an English opera after Molière, Quinault & Corneille (London, 1675)
- Apple Music
Inspired by the Psyché created collectively by Lully, Molière, Corneille and Quinault, Locke's Psyche was a veritable artistic firework display: seeking to vie in splendour with the operas of continental Europe, it luxuriously combined theatre, song, dance, and spectacular machines and scenery. Sébastien Daucé here offers us his splendid reconstruction of this key masterpiece in the history of early English opera.
