Gramophone Magazine

April 2006

“The production, designs and choreography are an absolute joy. The singers include Paul Agnew as Valère, whose lively 'Hâtez-vous de vous embarquer' bears a startling resemblance to 'Scacciata dal suo nido' from Handel's Rodelinda of 10 years earlier. Nathan Berg rages eloquently as the villainous Huascar in 'Les Incas'. Most magnificent is the dance of the pipe of peace: led by Patricia Petibon and Nicolas Rivenq, and joined after the curtain calls by the whole company, it is foot-tappingly memorable.”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“[Rameau's] inspiration is at white heat throughout, with William Christie and a large and stylish team of singers and players revelling in each number, often deliberately over-acting in the more melodramatic moments of this fantastic drama...The final curtain brings an exuberant encore after the credits, with Christie hilariously joining in the dance.”
