Platée

by Jean-Philippe Rameau

Concept

A sadistic experiment planned by a host of gods obsessed with beauty: In this Platée, Jupiter and his jealous wife run pharmaceutical company “Biolympe”, whose products come at a high price – cruel animal testing in the company’s laboratories. Vain and ignorant amphibian Platée is unaware of her misery: her palace is a cage, her sunbed radioactive and the beauty treatments end fatally for more than one rabbit.
