Dance Sweets @ Brighton Early Music Festival

  • Sallis Benney Theatre 58-67 Grand Parade Brighton, England, BN2 0JY United Kingdom (map)

Ensemble Molière present an instrumental programme comprised of delicious little morsels, each a tantalising example of the elegance and frisson of French baroque dance. In the 18th Century, dancing was one of the most celebrated arts of French society and often these dances would be grouped into suites to show to full gamut of technique, style and grace. In this programme we celebrate the crème de la crème of this rich tradition; starting with a light appetiser of Lully, we move onto more indulgent Rameau and complex Couperin, creating our very own selection of Dance Sweets!
