"Dardanus, or baroque opera in all its glory? For sure, the 1739 version has all the necessary features, but Michel Fau's staging, propelled by extraordinarily modern sets and costumes, transports us to a unique universe. Conducted by Raphaël Pichon at the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux, Rameau's original verbose work receives an exceptional rebirth... Although the version of Dardanus recorded by Pichon is the second one, adapted by Rameau in 1744, it's the original 1739 version that was staged here: it's a richer piece of theatre, thanks not least to a number of the supernatural scenes such as that of the Dreams and the magician. Michel Fau thus presents "a deliriously aesthetic excess", which literally transports us for three hours." - bachtrack.com
