William Christie

William Christie

Harpsichordist, conductor, musicologist, teacher, and founder of Les Arts Florissants, William Christie’s pioneering work has led to a renewed appreciation of Baroque music in France. An acknowledged master of tragédie-lyrique as well as opéra-ballet, Christie performs in the Vélez Blanco Patio, whose gracefully arcaded galleries, elaborately carved marble capitals, windows, and doorframes were the masterworks of an early sixteenth-century castle.

This program is developed in collaboration with the Juilliard School’s Historical Performance Department.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
