This oratorio premiered in January 1745, and is a masterpiece that shows Handel at the height of his powers both as composer and dramatist.

Platée : comic opera by Jean-Philippe Rameau( Visual )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written for the 1745 marriage of the Dauphin and the Spanish Infanta, Platée was a minor revolution when first performed, and was also the first purely burlesque work staged. Rameau's work on the vicissitudes of love satirises the sacrosanct rules of 18th century operatic form and is an enormous pastiche of traditional French opera. With love as its most popular subject, Rameau's use of Jupiter's feigned courtship of Plataea gleefully parodies every 18th century musical form. Thalia and Momus have come to help Thespius, the inventor of comedy, stage a performance to correct the faults of humans. The subject will be "the laughable strategy" once used by Jupiter to cure the jealousy of the irascible Juno."--SBS
