In 1725 a group of Native Americans performed for King Louis XV, and inspired Rameau's Les Indes Galantes, or The Amorous Indies. Opera Lafayette, devoted to 18th-century French repertoire, presents selections from the entire opera as well as the complete finale in which Zima, a chief's daughter in North America, must choose among three lovers: one French, one Spanish, and one Native American. An acclaimed cast and the chamber vocal ensemble, Gallery Voices, join the Opera Lafayette Orchestra.
