“失傳的”芭蕾舞劇的現代重構
再現宏偉皇家芭蕾舞劇的視像音樂會

法皇路易十四15歲的時候他在巴黎羅浮宮參演了這齣宏偉的芭蕾舞劇。此劇採用舞中舞的概念。夜晚的整個世界通過五幕舞劇一一鋪展出來,直到太陽升起,象徵太陽王無與倫比的光彩。當時,首相馬薩林委約法國和義大利最優秀的藝術家創作一部獨特的芭蕾舞劇,講述年輕的路易十四成為「太陽神」的故事,藉此吹噓法國王室的優越地位。

首演非常成功,接著又演了七場。它在路易十四72年的整個統治期都享有崇高聲譽,給人留下深刻印象。然而,樂譜只有一小部份在50年後被皇家圖書管理員轉錄,而大部份則不知所踪。經過近400年後,它現在被多塞重新發現了。經過三年的潛心研究,他重構了這部
作品。2015年,「失傳的」芭蕾舞劇終於得到重生。聖特音樂節和凡爾賽宮皇家歌劇院等的演出,慶祝了它的復興。

為了香港法國五月藝術節的演出多塞委託了法國視像藝術家古奧爾,根據17世紀和現代的服裝、鑲花工藝造像去設計投影,將之投射到管弦樂團後面的屏幕上,讓我們能透過光影回到路易十四的時代,觀賞當年這部奇妙的製作。

A modern Re-construction of a ‘lost’ masterpiece
A mixed media live concert rediscovering the Sun King’s First Ballet

At the age of 15, His Majesty Louis XIV danced at the Louvre Palace. Based on the idea of a ballet within a ballet, through
five ‘dreams,’ the whole universe of the night is rolled outuntil dawn, before announcing the unequalled glimmer of the Sun King.

The best artists at the time from France and Italy were commissioned by Cardinal-Duke Mazarin to create a unique piece to glorify young Louis’ transformation into ‘Sun King’ and in boasting of the superior status of the French Monarchy.

The première was such a success that seven repeat performances had to be given and its reputation was firmly engraved in popular memory during Louis XIV’s 72-year reign. However, the score was only partly transcribed and then only 50 years later by the King’s
librarian, who left the largest part of the ballet’s music unknown to future generations. Now, nearly 400 years later, the music has been rediscovered by Sébastien Daucé, who has re-constructed the piece after three years of research and reconstruction. The ballet’s modern revival was celebrated in 2015 at the Festival de
Saintes / Royal Opera of Versailles when the ‘lost‘ ballet was brought back to life.

Especially for Le French May Arts Festival, Daucé has commissioned French video artist Etienne Guiol to create a light projection based on the iconography of costumes, marquetry from the 17th century and today, enabling us to travel back in time to one of the most marvellous spectacles of King Louis XIV’s reign.
