Opera on the big screen

The latest in a series of operatic screenings from the Glyndebourne Festival can be seen at Derby arts centre and cinema Quad on July 25.

Jean-Phillippe Rameau defined 18th century French music, publishing his widely influential Treaty on Harmony in 1722. His opera Hippolyte et Aricie was Rameau’s first work for the stage, written when he was nearly 50. It is also Glyndebourne’s first production of an opera by Rameau, and will strike audiences, as it did in Paris in 1733, with its richness of invention. It is broadcast live on July 25, at 6.15pm.
