Jean-Baptiste Lully: Bellérophon, Libretto by Thomas Corneille.

First performed on January 31st 1679, Bellérophon was among the most popular of Lully’s operas during his lifetime.
The myth of Bellérophon was intended as a metaphor for Louis XIV’s military victories in the Netherlands.
This world première and eagerly anticipated release is the fruit of lengthy musicological research by Christophe Rousset.
