An 18th century comic opera - Don Quichotte Chez La Duchesse: Le Concert Spirituel review by Chris Tew

Spoiler Alert
13/08/2018

This piece was recorded by the same group for Naxos in the 1990’s.However it gains considerably by being seen in the theatre in the palace of Versailles.There are 4 main characters;Don Quixote and Sancho Panza,The duchess and a narrator.The production is lovely.The music is a mixture of French recitative with short airs and dances.There is a scene towards the end where there is a march for a Japanese man who sings nonsense which is “translated” into French by a bass which is very good.There is spoken dialogue so the video is twice the length of the audio CD.there are two interludes.In one the conductor sings in a matador outfit what sounds like a Maurice Chevalier song in French and a lady in Spanish costume sings a Zarzeula song in Spanish.The audience enjoyed it as I did very much.
