French operas by Quinault, Lully and their successors are more than mere entertainment: as is any artistic production, the works collected in the Recueil général des opéras convey a certain view of Man and his relationship to the rest of the world as well as to the divine. Thus, from a moral point of view, they owe a lot to the Epicurean tradition. However, it is a qualified blend of epicureanism, which evolves from straight forward hedonisme to an ettempt to reconcile happiness and virtue. Criticism of the gods, which already existed at the time of Lully, later becomes more acute, while Man transforms himself into a victim. Nevertheless, after 1713, divine power is progressively rehabilitated. Paradoxically, such developments show that most outright protests arose in the Opera under the reign of Louis XIV whereas the Enlightenment was a period of moral and theological renewal.
