La mécanique des sentiments is back

Published on 28 August 2019

In the friendly atmosphere of the small Salle Bizet, the artists got a free hand to revisit the operatic repertoire and celebrate chanson. The vocalists of the Nouvelle Troupe Favart take a moment of freedom and complicity with the audience.

La Mécanique des sentiments pulls the strings of the art of emotions, exhibiting the construction of the sentimental space of opera. A narrator guides us through the landscape of passions and shows us, with the help of two musicians and two vocalists, how the various feelings shape body and space and how they become music.

We draw from a large repertoire from Offenbach to Debussy, from Schubert to Poulenc, via Rameau and Chausson.

La Mécanique des sentiments

October 16 to 19, 2019

On some evenings, the Opéra Comique converts into a music club, offering a lyrical and intimist early evening opportunity for an aperitif. Let yourself be transported by the quirky and joyous singers while enjoying a glass of champagne. In the cosy Salle Bizet, the singers of the Nouvelle Troupe Favart are given carte blanche to revive their lyrical repertoire and celebrate songs while sharing a moment of freedom and complicity with the audience. Come and join us, 8 rue Marivaux, to share an off-beat and
playful drink!
