The French early-music ensemble Les Arts Florissants has earned international acclaim for reviving Baroque opera with vivid theatricality, keen musicological insight, and a distinctly modern dramatic sense. Director William Christie leads the ensemble in two sonically rich works involving supernatural powers meddling in mortal affairs—Purcell's transcendent Dido and Aeneas and Charpentier's pastorale Actéon, each a seamless marriage of narrative and music.
