Une autre passion

When JS Bach wrote his St Matthew Passion, the “passion” he refers to is more the agony and death of Jesus Christ than strong emotions or desires. For this “Other Passion”, constructed from elements of Bach’s great score, Swedish choreographer and film director Pontus Lidberg will explore the universal themes of suffering, passion and desire.

Manon Lescaut

Another "Manon", this time the work of Giacomo Puccini, which received thirty curtain calls at the behest of enthusiastic audiences and critics. It was with this work that Puccini revealed himself as an operatic composer on a par with Verdi.

Orleanskaya Deva
The Maid of Orleans

No, not the heroic-comic poem in fourteen cantos by Voltaire, published in 1752 in Geneva, but an opera by Tchaikovsky, composed after "Eugene Onegin". Fascinated since childhood by the character of Joan of Arc, Tchaikovsky wrote "The Maid of Orleans" based loosely on the play by Schiller, "Die Jungfrau von Orleans".

Così fan tutte

A Viennese story that actually happened? Or a philosophical fable about love, a bittersweet meditation on the faithfulness of women? “Women are like that”. And what of men?
