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.
