Gallant indies

Films Pelléas, Arte France cinéma (Firm), Opéra national de Paris

DVD - 2022

In 2019, eight opera singers and 30 dancers from a wide variety of artistic and demographic backgrounds convened at Paris's Opera Bastille to begin work on an ambitious new production of Les Indes galantes, a cornerstone of French musical history. From the director of Becoming Traviata, Philippe Beziat's documentary captures the work of this multifaceted troupe under the direction of artist and filmmaker Clement Cogitore; together, they shepherd Rameau's opera into the twenty-firs...t century, while exquisitely and in joyfully mirroring the true diversity of contemporary France. Replete with gorgeous melodies and fantastic dance numbers, Cogitore's production integrates questions of racism, classism, and colonialism into a radical new staging that both honors and transforms the original text.
