Jean-Philippe Rameau: Dardanus

Books | Opera

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
The first version of Dardanus, which was performed at the end of 1739, was composed apparently in only six months and marks a particularly productive phase in Rameau’s career. In a period of only six years five of his major works were performed at the Académie Royale de Musique in Paris.

The theme is taken from Greek mythology: The opera describes the war between Teucer (the future founder of Troy), his Phrygian people and the army of Dardanus.

A milestone of French Baroque opera in a performance practice orientated vocal score.
