With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, the soundtrack of Gérard Corbiau's film "Farinelli" contributed considerably to the international renown of Les Talens Lyriques.

In 1994, in order to reinvent the voice of Carlo Broschi, known as Farinelli (1705-1782), a computer was used to mix the timbres of countertenor Derek Lee Ragin and coloratura soprano Ewa Mallas-Godlewska. On stage, rather than a falsettist, it was Ann Hallenberg, a mezzo with a fruity, ambiguous timbre, whom Christophe Rousset chose to portray the first rock star in the history of music. 'The magic of the film came about thanks to a gripping human story, reinforced by music that was equally gripping,' resumes Christophe Rousset, music director and conductor of the production. The idea for this programme, recorded in concert in Bergen, was to mix the emblematic arias of the film with other works from Farinelli's repertoire and relate the two periods of his career: the first, virtuosic and flamboyant, where the character accumulated as many ducats as vocalises; and a second, melancholic, introverted, and sensitive. The libretto relates the exciting life of the extremely famous castrato, crisscrossing Europe on the occasion of concert tours, giving performances acclaimed by royal families and an appreciative public alike.
