OPERA AND BALLET IN LOUIS XIV’s FRANCE
Love of dance might not be the first thing you think of when you hear the name Louis XIV, but during his long reign, the Sun King brought ballet, opera, and other arts into the cultural life of the French aristocracy. He helped create a distinct French tradition from which modern French culture would evolve. We’ll learn about Louis the man and Louis the king with an emphasis on the arts of his time.
