Daphnis et Églé : pastorale héroïque en un acte : (1753) (50:33)
La naissance d'Osiris : acte de ballet : (1754) (56:10).
"There is no precedent for these works being performed together. They are in many ways very different, yet there are also some striking similarities with the characters of Love and the High Priest featuring in both and each boasting delightful thunder scenes. La naissance d'Osiris, written for the birth of the future Louis XV, has, despite its title, no mention of Egypt whatsoever and the climate is pure French pastoral. The basis for the story of Daphnis et Égle is immediately accessible for a modern audience (who doesn't know of someone who has mistaken love for friendship?)...What begins in the first half as hand-made magic--the paper wings on the girl playing Cupid, or a storm scene created with amateur percussion--ends with a 'real-life' storm and Jupiter's descent to announce the greatest blessing of human love on earth--the birth of a child."--Insert.
