While the Prejlocaj exhibit at the CNCS in Moulins is ending on Sunday, March 6, 2016, the new exhibit « Barockissimo ! Les arts florissants en scène » will take place from April 9 through September 18.

The exhibit « Barockissimo ! Les arts florissants en scène »

« A baroque music ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, founded in 1979 by the French-American orchestra conductor William Christie, is a major influence in the revival of the baroque repertoire.

Les Arts Florissants works with the most important directors such as Jean-Marie Villégier, Alfredo Arias, Pierre Barrat... and choreographers like Francine Lancelot or Trisha Brown.

The exhibit evokes the incredible inventiveness of the Arts Florissants with nearly one hundred and fifty stage costumes coming from different productions.

It will also set up reproductions of decors and costumes, photographies, film excerpts, the whole experience paired with music!

We will admire both the art and originality of the costume designers, and boldness and adventurous spirit of the Arts Florissants, ranging from the Louis XIV keg to the Incas feathers or the haute-couture transvestite!
 » explains Delphine Pinasa, Director of the CNCS.
