It was common practice in Rameau's time to produce a suite of
ballet movements from operas to perform in concert. This performance by Septura features the classic 'French' Ouverture from Darnanus, with its grandiose dotted-rhythm opening giving way to a compelling energetic movement, is a musical highlight of the opera.
