Jean-Philippe Rameau – Hippolyte et Aricie
The first performance of Hippolyte et Aricie at Zurich Opera House will be conducted by Emanuelle Haïm, an expert in 18th-century French music, with Orchestra La Scintilla. The piece will be directed by Jetske Mijnssen, whose productions are characterised by their great psychological finesse. Stéphanie d’Oustrac will return as Phèdre to Zurich Opera House, where she has already been celebrated for her interpretation of Charpentier’s Médée. Cyrille Dubois, a promising young singer from France, will sing Hippolyte, while the French soprano Mélissa Petit, known in Zurich for her roles in Freischütz and Werther, will portray Aricie.
