Description: Orchestral excerpts from operas were performed as soon as there were operas; it's not a 20th century development. This is the first volume of a series called Comédie et Tragédie and alongside the popular Rebel ballet and Lully suite, we get a 24-minute sampling from a 1706 Marais opera which has some real catchy tunes and a storm scene, complete with wind machine, that caught audiences' fancy at the time. Tempesta di Mare.
