Rameau's Platée

  • Overview

    A FOLLY OF VANITY
    Every creature in the swamp deserves a date every once and a while. Platée fancies herself quite the catch, even though empirical evidence suggests she’s not exactly the warmest and friendliest catch in the sea. Such is her pride that no mere mortal will do for a mate. When the King of Greece proves impervious to her charms, she recalibrates her sights higher. A lot higher, in fact. All the way to Mount Olympus and the “dazzling glory” of Jupiter himself! Just as they are about to be pronounced god and water nymph, all is revealed - she’s been secretly starring in a comedy pointing up the folly of our vanity.
