The King at the Opera

On April 27, 1673, King Louis XIV attended a performance of Cadmus et Hermione, an opera by Jean-Baptiste Lully. The Gazette de France, an extremely popular periodical at the time, reports:

“His Majesty, accompanied by the Queen and Mademoiselle d’Orléans went to the faubourg Saint-Germain to be entertained by an opera at the Académie Royale de Musique arranged by Monsieur Baptiste Lully, who is so acclaimed in that art; and the Royal party left immensely satisfied by the superb performance, in which the tragedy of Cadmus and Hermione, a magnificent work by Monsieur Quinault, was depicted with the aid of astounding sets and contraptions invented and supervised by Monsieur Vigarani, a gentleman from Modena.”
