    Rich and lush, French Baroque Opera stands today, still, as one of the most sensual and lavish pleasures of the era. Simple melodies turn into romantic dreams, chords strike warm notes within the heart, and the female voice turns into the song of a delicate lark. Masters such as Rameau and Lully were skilled at the art of operatic composition, which requires not only mastery of melody, but mastery of emotion and sensitivity, color and circumstance.
