Following the success of the 2019 productions of Les Indes Galantes and Hippolyte et Aricie, Ensemble OrQuesta return to the John McIntosh Arts Centre in Fulham, London with another French baroque opera. This time with this little known piece by early XVII century female composer Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre.

The Academy course is led by Ensemble OrQuesta founder Marcio da Silva, and early music specialist Stephanie Gurga. Professional stage photos are taken at the dress rehearsals.
