“Zaïs” was Rameau’s first opera devoted entirely to la “ferie” – the enchanted world of Middle-Eastern myth, with its spirits and fantastical aerial beings. Premiered at the Paris Opra on 29 February 1748, the work was much praised for the strength, elegance and diversity of its music and for the grace of its ballets. Although Cahusac’s libretto received some criticism, this delightful work proved popular: it was revived in 1761 and 1769 and was performed over one hundred times during a period of more than two decades.

Presented in the order in which they appear in the opera, the Symphonies are derived from the critical edition of the full score (“Opera Omnia Rameau” IV.15) and retain the bar numbers and reference marks found in that volume. This allows performers to refer where necessary to the critical commentary, which forms part of the full score.
