Tragedy in music in a prologue and five acts

Known as a performer and author of pieces for the viola da gamba, Marin Marais was also an opera musician and even conductor of the orchestra for several years. He composed four lyrical tragedies, one of which, Ariadne et Bacchus, has yet to be rediscovered. With a libretto rich in characters and contrasting situations, a dense and dramatic score, and colorful orchestration, this is undoubtedly one of the masterpieces of the second half of the reign of Louis XIV
