Le Silence

Presentation

‘We don’t know exactly what the soul thought it saw...’, says Ygraine in the Trois petits drames pour marionnettes. This triptych by the Belgian Nobel laureate Maurice Maeterlinck forms the libretto for a new opera, commissioned by La Monnaie. Under the title Le Silence des ombres, the young composer-conductor Benjamin Attahir and director Olivier Lexa opt decidedly for silence, the invisible, the unsayable, and restrained dramatic tension. ‘The tragedy should unfold in each spectator’s dream...’.

This production is presented as part of Troika.
