Persée is a landmark production for Opera Atelier. The company’s 2000 production was the first fully staged incarnation of the opera since it inaugurated the Royal Opera House at Versailles in 1770 during the wedding celebrations of the future Louis XVI to Marie Antoinette.

Opera Atelier’s 2004 remount of Persée was the subject of a documentary that has subsequently become an international calling card for Opera Atelier. Following the astounding success of Armide in 2012, the Royal Opera House has invited Opera Atelier back to Versailles this May with Persée. This prestigious engagement has allowed Opera Atelier to enhance Persée’s visual elements, making it the company’s most lavish production to date.

The moving story of a man’s ascension from his questionable beginnings to his rightful place as a god, Persée is a retelling of the classical Greek Perseus myth.
