The Observer

1st May 2011

“the Paris production by Robert Carsen of Rameau's astonishing last opera, Les Boréades, is brilliantly sumptuous if cold, while Pierre Audi's typically sharp and forceful Castor et Pollux from Amsterdam is eloquent. Andrie Serban's Les Indes galantes is a riot of fun, but pick of the bunch is José Montalvo's mingling of video, dance and animal fantasy in Les Paladins, one of the most deliciously clever stagings of recent times, with superbly lively music from Christie's forces.”
