Travel Tip: Opera in England
Hippolyte et Aricie

Hippolyte et Aricie: By Jean-Philippe Rameau

Jean-Philippe Rameau:  Hippolyte et Aricie

Hippolyte et Aricie was Rameau’s first work for the stage, written when he was nearly 50. It is also Glyndebourne’s first opera by Rameau. The French composer drew on ancient Greek tragedy and 17th-century classical French drama to create a version of the story of Theseus, Phaedra and Hippolytus that is his own unique construct.

Sung in French with English supertitles
