Esteemed Readers, to keep up the solemn New Year spirit I would like to share with you this charming chaconne from J.-B. Lully’s opera “Cadmus et Hermione”. This is the first opera composed & performed in France. Lully presented it in Paris in 1673.
The plot is based on Ovid’s Metamorphoses it tells a tragic love story of Cadmus, founder of Thebes, & Hermione, daughter of Venus & Mars.
Vive le Roy! :-)🎄
