The Rameau Project

Founded and directed by Jonathan, The Rameau Project is a major multidisciplinary research project devoted to the operas of Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764). The Project began in November 2012 when the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Jonathan gave the première of his Bärenreiter edition of Rameau’s Anacréon (1754). From this auspicious start has grown a collaboration which has so far given rise to two conferences, the first UK studio recording of a Rameau opera since 1980, dance workshops in the UK and Paris, numerous radio broadcasts, and the performance with eighteenth-century choreography of three Rameau operas at London’s South Bank, all with Jonathan and the OAE. Most recently, Jonathan has conducted fully staged productions of Les fêtes d’Hébé at the Opéra de Bastille and the Royal College of Music and Dardanus with English Touring Opera.
