About the Production

On Site Opera, which has garnered acclaim for immersive, site-specific productions, performed Rameau’s one-act Pygmalion in two unusual—and unusually apt—venues in the summer of 2014, just before the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death: Madame Tussauds New York, on June 17, and Lifestyle-Trimco Showroom, on June 20 & 21.

Rameau’s 1748 acte de ballet is widely considered one of his greatest one-acts. In Ballot de Sovot’s libretto, based on Ovid, the sculptor Pygmalion creates a statue to which he professes his love, and which he asks Venus to bring to life. L’Amour (Cupid) arrives to praise Pygmalion’s artistry and faith in love, and animates the statue. On Site’s new production explored the themes and lessons inherent in the myth.

 

Running time: approximately 50 minutes.
