Pascal Dusapin is definitely busy at the moment. To be sung, a wonderful chamber opera, is being performed at La Monnaie, a venue that has forged a faithful bond with Pascal Dusapin. Premiered in 1994 at the Théâtre des Amandiers, in the framework of the Festival d’Automne, this work, with its original scenography by James Turrell, based on a text by Gertrude Stein “A lyrical opera made by two”, innovated as much in the use of the voice (three solo soprano) as in the instrumental writing, together with electronics. This new production will give the opportunity to rediscover the third opera by Pascal Dusapin, this time directed by Sjaron Minailo.
