the magic continues
After several performances at the Royal Opera House Muscat in Oman in October, Ravel's opera L'Enfant et les Sortilèges will be shown, again under the baton of Titus Engel, at the Opéra de Lyon from 14 to 19 November. The production, directed by Grégoire Pont, will feature soloists from the Opera Studio of the Opéra de Lyon, thus providing a platform for young singers.
Additional performances are planned specifically for school classes in Lyon, which had also been the case in Oman.
First performed in 1925 after a libretto by Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the work is about a child who takes her anger out on the adult world with her toys and pets. However, the objects in his room come to life and take revenge. Ravel's musical interpretation of the libretto creates a world between humour and childish fantasy.
