Henry Purcell

King Arthur, or The British Worthy

Famous for its “cold song”, the semi-opera King Arthur tells of the birth of Britain and the victory of King Arthur over the Saxons. Here, Henry Purcell has composed his most elegant stage music in which tragedy alternates with humour.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Don Giovanni

Over the course of a year, the stage of the Opéra des Nations will play host to the Da Ponte trilogy, Mozart’s three operas created in collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte. In this masterpiece, in which the grotesque flirts with the tragic, we reach the quintessence of Mozart’s genius.

Mikhail Petrenko

Now aged 42, Mikhail Petrenko is invited to perform with the greatest conductors on the greatest operatic stages. Whether he is playing Mephistopheles in Faust, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Heinrich in Lohengrin, or Hagen in Götterdämmerung, the artist wins over his audience, recalling the great Russian basses who have made their mark on the operatic repertoire.
