The opera was last performed in the 18th century, the statement said.
In Pécs, renowned sopranos Katherine Watson, Judith Van Wanroij, Chantal Santon-Jeffery and Katia Velletaz will perform with the early music Orfeo ensemble and the Purcell Choir under the baton of György Vashegyi.
Boismortier (1689–1755) was a composer popular mainly for his instrumental works of which he composed over 100. Les Voyages, however, was also among his most esteemed.
The opera consists of a prologue and three acts.
In the prologue, Amor embarks on a journey to find true love. The three acts tell three independent stories, playing in a village, in the city and in a royal court.
