The new production of Les Indes galantes at Opéra Bastille is exceptional, from the vocal cast to the choreography by Bintou Dembélé. But the stand-out performance of the evening comes from conductor Leonardo Garcia Alarcón.

Stéphanie d'Oustrac (Cassandre) © Vincent Pontet | Opéra national de Paris

Lisette Oropesa conquers Paris in Les Huguenots

Lisette Oropesa (Marguerite de Valois) © Opéra de Paris | Agathe Poupeney
It's a big night at the Opéra Bastille for their 350th anniversary season; Oropesa's dazzling coloratura stops the show; Andreas Kriegenburg sets the action interestingly in a Star Trek future.
