Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) is hardly a household name but he is a significant figure in the history of music, being the first to publish a book laying down the principles of tonal harmony in 1725-6. His first stage work, Hippolyte et Aricie of 1733, created a sensation by breaking with the traditions of Lully and paved the way for his other operas, including Dardanus in 1739. The original version was heavily criticised for its libretto, amongst other things, and revised versions appeared in 1744 and 1760; the edition used by ETO largely followed the version used to open the 1744 run.
