Opera Lafayette presents: Menu: Plaisirs

Opera Lafayette, with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, presents Menu: Plaisirs, an evening of French song and arias with Jean-Paul Fouchécourt.

Tenor Jean-Paul Fouchécourt, interpreter of the French baroque repertoire, invites you to journey with him through music from the 17th to the 20th century. In this spectacular cabaret, the showman magically transforms from one character into another, and performs songs and arias he has made famous throughout the world, including on Opera Lafayette's stages and recordings.

A pre-performance discussion with conductor and artistic director Ryan Brown and stage director Jean Lacornerie will take place one-hour before each performance.

The evening concludes with complimentary wine and more entertainment.
