About

Sebastien Dauce director Vincent Huguet stage director Marc-Antoine Charpentier Histoires sacrees These wonderfully inventive 'sacred operas' (as one could also later describe Handel's oratorios) are linked together by musical beauties, harrowing arias and magnificent chorales, deployed by Sebastien Dauce together with the director Vincent Huguet: they are indeed magnificently written to be performed as well as sung. Telling the stories of three biblical women (Judith, Cecilia and Mary Magdalene) the performance is supported by sets and costumes suggesting distant biblical lands, this 'show' reflects the 'sacred theatre' taken to great heights by Jesuits, a premiere in Louis XIV's chapel!
