Dardanus
By Rameau. Pinchgut Opera. City Recital Hall, Angel Place, Sydney, November 30. Bookings: (02) 8256 2222. Until December 5.

THIS small but enterprising company, which mounts just one production a year, has taken on its biggest challenge in presenting this opera-entertainment by France's leading 18th-century composer. Rameau's refined motets, cantatas and keyboard music are better known than his stage works, but this opera, written in 1739 when the composer was a mature 56, is a good place to start.
