DIALOGUES DES CARMELITES

Poulenc

Voted "Best Show of the Year" by critics and acclaimed by audiences, Olivier Py's production offers a timeless, deeply moving version of Poulenc's masterpiece.

LA CLEMENCE DE TITUS

Mozart

Denis Podalydès's staging, unanimously hailed by critics, situates the action in the 1930s. As the State collapses, Titus's court takes refuge in a palace hotel (sets designed by Eric Ruf) to wait out the crisis.

DON GIOVANNI

Mozart

Stéphane Braunschweig imagines the story of Don Giovanni as seen through the eyes of Leporello. The manservant relives his master's last day in a flashback verging on nightmare.

ORLANDO FURIOSO

Vivaldi

Pierre Audi situates the action in a mysterious 18th century Venice, where the characters develop in an increasingly strange, unreal setting.

LA VESTALE

Spontini

Eric Lacascade focuses attention on the singing by situating the action in an atemporal universe

LA DIDONE

Cavalli

With this refined, understated production, Clément Hervieu-Léger celebrates theatre in this little-known work by Cavalli, where the gods of Olympus are represented as human beings.

TANCREDE

Rossini

Jacques Osinski places the action of this heroic melodrama in an embassy in a country at war. An understated, contemporary space provides the backdrop for an array of scenic features that evoke, in turn, sumptuous reception rooms, antechambers and secret offices.

ORLANDO

Haendel

In David McVicar's very elegant production, period costumes, magical lighting and masterful décors set off the ambivalences of love.

IDOMENEO

Mozart

Stéphane Braunschweig transposes the action to the time of the Cyprus conflict in the 1970s. In this sensitive staging, a single, mobile décor aptly captures the different settings of the plot.

CASTOR ET POLLUX

Rameau

Christian Schiaretti invents a "mirror" stage play for this mythological story, spurred on by Andonis Foniadakis’ brisk choreography.

MEDEE

Charpentier

"L’amour, c’est moi", proclaims Medea in this production, for which Pierre Audi called in Berlin-based artist Jonathan Meese. The stage design imposes a labyrinth of images, each as seductive and disturbing as the next, and distinctive of Meese's universe.

MACBETH

Verdi

A leading figure in Italian theatre and cinema, Mario Martone calls forth a intricate play of light and video for this new version of Verdi’s Macbeth, between dream and reality. He explores the psychological motives of the Shakespearian drama and focuses on the couple as a space where human beings give the best and the worst of themselves.

THEODORA

Haendel

UK theatre and opera director Stephen Langridge signs a timeless and elegant staging of the last of Haendel oratorios. In this first staged version of Theodora ever presented in Paris, the conflict between the faith of a Christian martyr and a violent and decadent Roman Empire becomes a more universal confrontation of the human being and his choices and beliefs. 

MITHRIDATE

Mozart

Comédie-Française actor and stage director Clément Hervieu-Léger sets the action of Mozart’s drama in a disused theatre, during an unnamed war. Actors and refugees left behind improvise a stageplay of Mithridate by Racine, in a décor by Eric Ruf magnificently lit by Bertrand Couderc. 

NORMA

Bellini

Stéphane Braunscwheig  brings to light Norma’s double life, as she appears as both a priest of an the oppressed people of Gaul and a woman in love with the conqueror. The characters inhabit an austere underground space formed by a modular set which evolves following the opera’s plot, revealing diverse public and private areas. 

TRISTAN ET ISOLDE

Wagner

A great connoisseur of Wagner, Pierre Audi has chosen a subtle and refined aesthetic for his first staging of Tristan and Isolde. A clear-cut actors’ directing reveals the hidden origins of this well-known love drama, while delicate lighting by Jean Kalman and Christof Hetzer’s timeless costumes contribute to creating scenes of great visual power.
