Summary:
Castor et Pollux is arguably Rameau's finest creation in the tragédie lyrique style. Its libretto, based in mythology, focuses on an unusual theme: the self-sacrifice love between Castor, who is mortal, and his immortal brother, Pollux. When Castor is killed while defending his beloved Télaïre from an attempted abduction, Pollux resolves to give up this immortality and take Castor's place in the Underworld. After passionate debate over who will live and who will die, the brothers are eternally united, transformed into the constellation Gemini.

The striking luminous sets, depicting a stylized version of the constellation, give this fabulous production a glorious 21st century baroque look.
