A dramatic work with a humoristic spirit, the Apotheosis of Lully is a jubilant celebration of the French style. With this famous pastiche, Couperin pays homage to one of his favourite composers: the illustrious Monsieur de Lully? A superb echo of the production of Thésée presented by the Lille Opera.
