L’opéra des Lumières

Opera in the 18th century

Among the many opera recordings released by harmonia mundi, 18th-century operas represent the lion's share. This singularity is mainly due to the trajectories of the label and its artists; Handel, Rameau, Mozart, and Gluck are some of the composers featured in this section. All have contributed to the evolution of a genre on the verge of reaching an infinitely more elaborate, unitary, homogeneous form: a genuine theatre of human passions.
