Modest Mussorgsky

Boris Godunov

Presenting the original version of 1869, means meeting a tsar, an ambivalent person, both a powerful man and yet an unhappy one. Mussorgsky has composed not only an opera, but also a popular musical drama.

Luca Pisaroni

Luca Pisaroni was born in Venezuela, grew up in Bussetto and loved dramas, internal dilemmas and challenges. Performing was his long-time love and he was convinced that everything learned from lieder could feed into opera and vice-versa.

Tenor

Piotr Beczała

Off to a flying start, he appears on and enthrals the most prestigious international stages. The brightness of his tone immediately brings Puccini or Verdi to mind, but the repertoire of this extraordinary artist is much wider. He has notably become the ambassador of the French repertoire.

Ballet
Opéra des Nations
Abou Lagraa

Wahada

Supported majestically by the Mass in C minor, Abou Lagraa develops a dance portrayed with fluidity, abandon, virtuosity and harmony. A shared dance offering a spiritual journey, where the bodies become music, borne on the wings of the crystal clear Mass by Mozart.
