Les Talens Lyriques / Les Fêtes galantes
BRUSSELS  •  Salle Henry Le Boeuf  •  Ongoing

Jean-Fery Rebel: La Terpsicore (1720), Les plaisirs champêtres (1734), Les Eléments, extr.
Georg Friedrich Händel: Opéra-ballet Terpsichore - Acte de ballet (1734)

The Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels hosts Christophe Rousset and Béatrice Massin in a unique dance show. What do Handel's ballet Terpsichore and Rebel's Les plaisirs champêtres have in common? The emblematic figure of Marie Sallé, the most celebrated and talented French dancer of her time, that's what. During her stay in London in 1734 Sallé introduced Rebel's ballets to the city and dazzled the great Saxon composer.
