Louis XIV and Napoleon understood just how effective music could be as a political weapon. With its entertaining staging, this performance features a program of satirical and propaganda pieces written by twenty French composers on the themes of elections and sovereignty. Discover arias from operettas and political songs from a time when France was torn between two electoral candidates, one being more of a quack than a technocrat, the other, more of a charmer than an economist.
