HISTORY

Alcyone received its premiere on February 18, 1706 at the Paris Opera, where the composer Marin Marais was Director. The libretto is based on Metamorphoses, the Latin narrative poem written by the Roman poet Ovid in 8 AD. The story of Alcyone and Ceyx is the basis of the term “halcyon days”, the seven days in winter when storms never occur, during which time Alcyone (as a bird) laid her eggs, and her father Aeolus, god of the winds, calmed the wind and the waves. The term has since come to refer to any peaceful time. Though the opera received many revivals in the decades after its premiere, Alcyone didn’t receive its modern premiere until 2017 at the Opera Comique in Paris, and American Baroque Opera Co. is excited to give the North American premiere.
