  • Jean-Philippe Rameau and librettist Louis Fuzelier created an opéra-ballet focused on amorous intrigues, set in various climes around the world. It was inspired by the November 1725 event in which French settlers in Illinois sent Chief Agapit Chicagou of the Metchigamea and five other chiefs to Paris. They met with Louis XV. Chicagou had a letter read pledging allegiance to the crown and they later danced three kinds of dances in the Théâtre-Italien. This version by Laura Scozzi is the concept of how Rameau would treat the work were he around nowadays.
  • On 25 November 1725, after , inspiring Jean-Philippe Rameau to compose his rondeau Les Sauvages.
