by Stage Tube - May 6, 2016

What happens when a good-looking, double-crossing cross-dresser meets her match(es) in beautiful costumes designed by leading French artist Annette Messager ("a bold messenger of feminist art," The New York Times)? The very French La Double Coquette, Ensemble Amarillis' charming update of an opera comique by Antoine Dauvergne, first presented in 1753. Glorious voices bring Dauvergne's gorgeous score to life, with 32 additions - supplements, asides, codas, and new harmonies that seamlessly complement the original score -- by contemporary French composer Gerard Pesson, and a cheeky, updated libretto by French poet Pierre Alferi.
