- RCM musicians visited Paris to rehearse with their French colleagues and sample some Parisian delights! #RCMinParis
- There were some baaaaaad puns afoot...
- Then it was time for two performances of the opera at the Opéra Bastille - toi toi toi!
- It was back to sunny England for the RCM musicians and performers from the Académie de l’Opéra de Paris and Centre de musique baroque de Versailles. Rehearsals began in the Britten Theatre in preparation for two sell-out performances this side of the channel.

Rameau: Les fêtes d’Hébé
Les fêtes d’Hébé was wildly popular with Parisian audiences in 1739. Almost 300 years later, Rameau's inventive and colourful score came to the Royal College of Music as part of a unique collaboration with the Académie de l’Opéra de Paris and Centre de musique baroque de Versailles.
