Jean-Baptiste Lully: Armide

Music for Louis XIV

Armide and her Lady-in-waiting (Johanna Neß)

A wonderful Ensemble, the gorgeous Göttinger Barockorchester and of course the enchanting art of the Hartwig Dance Company – bringing Lully’s masterpiece alive on the stage of the historic Baroque Theatre of the Palace of Valtice (CZ) was an incredibly intense and thrilling experience!

The Palace of Valtice

I am very happy to sing this role again (hopefully not for the last time) on October, 6th in the Palace of Pau, France: By the way the birthplace of the founder of the House of Bourbon, the Dynasty Louis XIV belonged to.
