While Cherubini’s Medea is expected in Athens next April, the united forces of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles summon the spirit of M.-A. Charpentier by performing a concert version of his Medea on the stage of the Théâtre de l’avenue Montaigne. Anna Pirozzi in Athens and Véronique Gens in Paris, on Monday 27 March 2023, will perform as the infanticidal magician. The great French soprano will take on Cyrille Dubois’ Jason with Hervé Niquet and his Concert Spirituel to conduct the tragedy in music.
