"[E]xuberant production of Jean-Philippe Rameau's second opera ... presents four exotic love stories ... In Le Turc généreux, Osman sets free his captive, Emilie, whom he loves, so that she may be reunited with her former lover, Valère; Les Incas du Pérou is all about the rivalry of the Inca Huascar and the Spaniard Don Carlos, both in pursuit of Princess Phani; Les Fleurs, fête persane offers a Persian love intrigue, as the Sultana Fatime tries to detect whether her husband Tacmas has his eye on the lovely Atalide; and Les Sauvages takes us to North America, where a Spaniard and a Frenchman compete for the love of Zima, daughter of a native chief, who prefers one of her own people."--Container
