Rare treat: Philipp Kapeller in Rameau’s “Les Paladins” in Oldenburg

Philipp Kapeller sings a true haute-contre part at the Staatstheater Oldenburg: As Manto (also cast as Atis), he makes sure that Argie and Atis will find happiness in “Les Paladins”, Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Baroque opera. Under the musical guidance of French conductor (and Early Music expert) Alexis Kossenko, the BallettCompagnie Oldenburg and its Paris-born artistic director Antoine Jully turn “Les Paladins” into a ballet opera entirely in keeping with Rameau’s sense.
