Co-founded by Bejamin Perrot and Florence Bolton, La Rêveuse (the feminine form of "The Dreamer") is a chamber music ensemble composed of soloists whose aim is to revive selected works of the 17th and 18th century — an age sparkling with artistic experimentation and invention. Eloquent in their mastery of color and richness of continuo, the musicians of La Rêveuse share with audiences not only the musical beauty — but also the rhetorical, spiritual and poetic force — of this répertoire.
La Rêveuse has attracted favorable critical attention with its concerts in France — including Les Concerts Parisiens, Folle Journée de Nantes (Brittany), Sable, Pontoise and the Festival Radio-France Montpellier —, and has also appeared abroad in England, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Japan and Cairo (Egypt). The group also regularly accompanies co-productions with Benjamin Lazar's Théâtre de l'Incrédule.
