Donald Macleod and guest William Christie chart André Campra's progress in Paris, from Master of Music at Notre Dame to becoming a composer of opera. From the moment he arrived at Notre Dame, Campra started shaking things up. A watershed came when he composed an opera ballet l'Europe galante in 1697. Its success led to Campra leaving Notre Dame to pursue a freelance career writing stage works.
