Yvonne, princesse de Bourgogne

Princess Yvonne has nothing of a princess about her: she is ugly, apathetic and taciturn. The constant butt of taunts, her presence disturbs and irritates to excess. Philippe Boesmans’s opera, commissioned by the Paris Opera in 2008, stands alone: both sordid and droll, of unexpected cruelty but also irresistibly seductive, it reveals all the darkness of the human soul. Brought to the stage in a disturbing production by Luc Bondy, both score and libretto conserve all the dark humour and cynicism of Witold Gombrowicz’s eponymous play.
