This fascinating event is full of discovery, as historical oboist Andrés Villalobos delves into the history of what is almost certainly the earliest known French stage work.

We’ll also hear some of this music in Andrés’s arrangement for oboe band, an ensemble contemporary with the work’s creation, as well as seeing the RCM's precious manuscript on display.
