Jiří Kylián & Andonis Foniadakis

Entre réel & illusion théâtrale

Through the musical works chosen and their aesthetic choreographies, which place humanity at the centre of all creativity, Jiří Kylián and Andonis Foniadakis scoff at our society in plays which celebrate the beauty of choreographic art.

Giuseppe Verdi

Messa da requiem

Is there still any need to introduce Teodor Currentzis and his ensemble, MusicAeterna, in Geneva? They practically belong to the Geneva stage having opened the last two seasons, in 2016 with Purcell’s unfinished work, The Indian Queen, and in 2017 with La Clemenza di Tito by Mozart. We may be sure that with the Requiem of Giuseppe Verdi, he will succeed once again in imposing his own particular version and fascinate us with his rigour and daring.

30 April > 11 May 2019
Opera
Grand Théâtre de Genève
Marc-Antoine Charpentier

Médée

The only lyrical tragedy of Marc-Antoine Charpentier constitutes the third part of the Myth of Medea that the Grand Théâtre has been sharing with you for several seasons. First of all it was the Medea by Cherubini, then Il Giasone by Cavalli. Charpentier’s masterpiece will be revisited by David McVicar in the company of La Cappella Mediterranea, directed by Leonardo García Alarcón.
