“a sensational success at the house” – “seldom seen such a physically and emotionally generous performance” – “eine phänomenal komische wie berührende Platée” – ***** Opera Now Choice of the Month [October 20201]
Marcel Beekman shines in the title role of Rameau’s masterpiece PLATÉE. Conducted by William Christie and staged by Robert Carsen, DVD, Blu-ray and CD are available worldwide on UNITEL EDITION and HARMONIA MUNDI.




“This performance had an unforgettable Platée in the Dutch tenor Marcel Beekman” wrote The New York Times after his international break-through with the title role in Rameau’s opera. Described by Süddeutsche Zeitung as “the master singer who achieves miracles” and praised by Wiener Zeitung for a performance that “was snazzy…even defied gravity”, Amsterdam based Marcel Beekman is renowned for his interpretation of operatic character roles as well as early and contemporary music performances.
