Annotation
What connects Armid's witch, Cretan Faid, or Kirke's seducer? Sure beauty and fateful fate. It also connects them to the sea where their dramas take place, sometimes the sea itself is the cause of the suffering of these femmes fatales.
The French expression is quite appropriate, as the heroes of the city are singled out by the Frenchman Véronique Gens, a collaborator of William Christie, René Jacobs or Philippe Herrewegh. This time, Les Ambassadeurs, accompanied by flute player Alexis Kossenek, will be accompanied by Lully, Rameau, Leclair and Couperin.
They all will begin the "Mediterranean" Summer Festival of Old Music to remind us that the sea is particularly tied to the heroines in French by being ladies.
