Rigoletto
A grief-stricken father before the lifeless body of his child. Such is the heart-rending image evoked by the final bars of Rigoletto. Taking this drama as a point of departure, Claus Guth has conceived a production in which the buffoon sees his life pass before his eyes, a humiliating farce softened only by the presence of his daughter.
When, in Scenes of Bohemian Life, the characters imagined by Henry Murger, reminisce on their time as young, penniless artists - the Momus Coffee, the parts and poor Mimi, cut down in the flower of youth - it is with all the nostalgia that passing time affords.
Shadowing each character of Così fan tutte, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker intimately marries song and dance. She excels in rendering visible the music’s underlying geometry, transforming the stage of the Palais Garnier into a laboratory for lovers.
