Boismortier: Don Quichotte Chez La Duchesse
LE CONCERT SPIRITUEL NIQUET C. BENIZIO G. BENIZIO
The Niquet, Shirley & Dino trio was formed on the occasion of Purcell’s King Arthur,a show that marked the lyric stage and the world of the DVD. Five years later, their complicity has been further reinforced, and they present a work close to Hervé Niquet’s heart: Boismortier’s Don Quichotte chez la Duchesse. This opera-ballet, written for Carnival and first performed in Paris in 1743, occupies a particular place in Hervé Niquet’s career since it was the first work played by Le Concert Spirituel 27 years ago.
