“Pigmalion” was the first example of a one-act ballet, preceded by an overture, composed specifically for the Académie royale de musique. With this work, Rameau turned to the form of the petit opéra. From its very first revival, “Pigmalion” was highly successful, and remained so until 1781. The new edition by Nathalie Berton-Blivet is based, for the most part, on the production material used at the Opéra from 1748 to 1781 and the performance material realized for the court revival at Fontainebleau in October 1754.

This later version, the last one validated by Rameau, is the one reconstituted in this precious OOR volume, including a detailed introduction in French and English, a critical libretto edition, the new score with its critical report and some interesting facsimile pages.
