"Les parties intégrantes" of the classical drama: Keys to the aesthetics of contemporary production

To perform an Eighteenth Century opera nowadays, it is necessary to adapt the codes of representation to the possibilities of its reception by the audience. But, before operating this translation, one must understand the internal rules of the piece, which can be done only by the use of intellectual categories belonging to the time it was written. By taking Pierre Corneille’s Parties intégrantes as a tool for preparing the performances of Vivaldi’s Rosmira fedele, the Académie Desprez aims to experiment this process.
