The first version of “Dardanus”, which was performed at the end of 1739, was composed apparently in only six months and marks a particularly productive phase in Rameau’s career. In a period of only six years five of his major works were performed at the Académie Royale de Musique in Paris.
The theme is taken from Greek mythology: The opera describes the war between Teucer (the future founder of Troy), his Phrygian people and the army of Dardanus.

• A milestone of French Baroque opera in a performance practice orientated vocal score

• With a brief foreword (Fr/Eng) containing salient information on the genesis of the work, the synopsis and the edition
