The last time Jean-Baptiste Lully’s opera Persée was presented at the L’Opéra Royale at Versailles, Marie Antoinette was in the audience. Only fitting, as the piece was being presented to celebrate her wedding to the future King of France, Louis XVI. The year was 1770.

This May, Persée will be performed again at Versailles for the first time in almost 250 years by a company that comes from a part of the world the French dismissed in 1770 as “quelques arpents de neige” or “a few acres of snow” – Toronto’s world-renowned Opera Atelier.
