The opening performance of the festival features the famous 'Zaïs' conducted by Christophe Rousset; 'Castor and Pollux' in the revival version of 1754 conducted by Raphaël Pichon (never previously performed in its entirety) and Grands Motets, summit of Rameau’s sacred work, conducted by William Christie will end the festival’s 32nd edition.
