A rich season is announcing itself for Reinoud Van Mechelen.
He will be debuting at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in a production of Castor et Pollux (roles of Mercure, a Spartan and an athlete). The stage director is Christan Schiarette and the musical director Hervé Niquet. Premiere on 13 October 2014.
The very charming production of "Rameau, Maître à danser", presented last June by the Théâtre de Caen and Les Arts Florissants conducted by William Christie, will be touring to the Opéra de Dijon, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Philharmonie de Luxembourg, the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and the Barbican Centre in London. Before the DVD will be released in November, please feel free to watch this production on streaming via Culturebox.
Reinoud Van Mechelen will then leave Monsieur Rameau (but only temporarily) in order to take part in the production of Les Fêtes vénitiennes by Campra at the Opéra Comique, staged by Robert Carsen and under the musical direction of William Christie. Premiere on 26 January 2015.
