We are delighted to present this remarkable contemporary opera, co-produced by Arcadi Île-de- France.
There are several reasons for this. Firstly its music, of course: a spellbinding score where the writing for the voice is extremely intricate (with glissandi and portamenti that literally take us into an eerie world), together with its spatialisation and computerised treatment which are used exclusively to serve the narrative. Secondly, because the director of this production is Luis Nieto, well known to Némo regulars. A true magician with images, he is brilliant at making the incredible erupt onto the stage at any moment, with a video clip (the top groups have benefited from his services) or a set-up that leaves us in a reverie… And lastly, because of the remarkable musical performance of the Le Balcon ensemble and its musical director, Maxime Pascal.
So here is a multimedia contemporary opera that appeals in every way, with every chance of attracting an increasingly curious – and numerous – audience!
