Cruising to the Island of Venus with Watteau

Poets, composers, and painters have romanticized the Greek island of Kythera and declared it an ideal landscape ever since the sea-born goddess of love went ashore there. This yearning dream in turn has never been depicted more enchantingly than in Antoine Watteau’s famous painting »The Embarkation for Kythera«, which Frederic II made the highlight of his collection. In Sanssouci and inspired by his favourite painter, he created his very own world enraptured island paradise for the fine arts.

Les Arts Florissants and Paul Agnew set sail for this mythical island with the young soprano Déborah Cachet, winner of the 9th edition of Le Jardin des Voix, for a program mixing French and English music. An island of pure musical happiness.
