Eric presents a recital as part of the Weekend of tribute to castrati in Versailles

Baroque Europe saw the reign of castrati. Long present in the Byzantine Empire, they were imposed first at the Sistine Chapel and then from Rome – where no woman could go on stage – conquered all of Italy before becoming indispensable from Vienna to London. Eric sings a recital of Purcell and Handel.
