Pygmalion double bill

Rameau & Benda


With Cupid’s assistance, the sculptor Pygmalion brings his beloved creation to life. Apotheosis treat us to two versions of this celebrated story. Jean-Philippe Rameau’s familiar one-act opera, Pigmalion, with a new choreography by Femke Gyselinck, is followed by Georg Benda’s little-known gem of the same name: a gripping monodrama for speaking voice and orchestra.
