Gaspare Spontini's La Vestale, first performed in 1807, is back on the bill at the Opéra Bastille with director Lydia Steier

La Vestale had not been performed at the Opéra national de Paris for 150 years. This opera in three acts, created in 1807 by Gaspare Spontini, tells the story of Julia, priestess of the temple of Vesta, who is torn between her religious duties and her love for a Roman general. Directed by Lydia Steier, it explores the themes of religious extremism and militaristic zeal, carried by a brilliantly orchestrated score.
