Jean-Jacques Rousseau hailed Platée as “the best musical play ever to be heard in our theatres.” In Robert Carsen’s production, the mythological events take place in the world of Parisian haute couture, with Jupiter portrayed as the fashion god Karl Lagerfeld (1933-2019) – who has now been transferred up to Olympus. The ingeniously apt transposition of this satirical opera into the modern day has long been a hit. Renowned Baroque music specialist William Christie conducts his Les Arts Florissants, the Arnold Schoenberg Chor, and a fantastic cast.

“A candy-colored baroque dream” (Salzburger Nachrichten)

“A must-see – and not only for fashion freaks!” (Bühne)
