Fantasio

From 1872 Fantasio, which preceded The Tales of Hoffmann, was no longer performed. Today it rises from the ashes thanks to a co-production with the Opéra Comique. Transformed into a libretto by Paul de Musset, Alfred de Musset’s text takes on an operatic spirit.

Figaro-ci, Figaro-là!

To introduce young, and less young, audiences to the sometimes complex world of opera, the Grand Théâtre de Genève invites you to discover Figaro-ci, Figaro-là !. The performance is specially designed as an introduction to opera, and pays tribute to one of the pivotal characters in opera in general, and this season in particular: Figaro.

Ascanio

Ascanio is presented in collaboration with the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève and conducted by Guillaume Tourniaire. In a masterful tapestry of leitmotifs, the piece blends the sensuality of French music, the passionate accents of Italian lyricism and the refinement of the melodies and dances of the Renaissance repertoire.
