Les Arts Florissants is definitely in a class by itself -- it's not often you see a chamber ensemble that comes with its own troupe of opera singers, much less one specializing in the French baroque. But this stunningly original group, led by American-born harpsichordist William Christie, is known to put on a thoroughly entertaining show. These masters of period-appropriate instruments, including the viola da gamba (a cross between a violin and a cello) and the theorbo (imagine a lute of near-mythic proportions), make their much-anticipated return to the Walt Disney Concert Hall with a performance of Purcell's "Dido and Aeneas" and Charpentier's "Acteon".
