Lully’s compositions were so popular that they created France’s national musical style. When Rameau sought to revitalize the style of French opera, a scandal erupted. Soon, the city of Paris split into two factions that even went so far as to resort to violence to settle their dispute over whose music was better! In this concert, Flûte Alors! will contrast the operas Isis by Lully with Hippolyte et Aricie by Rameau. At the end of the evening, only one question will be on everyone’s lips: Êtes-vous Lulliste… ou Ramiste?
