The Opéra Comique is developing a model of production that grants time to the maturation of rehearsal work and allows the audience to witness the different stages of the creative process.
Accompanying creation as closely to the trades of opera as possible, helping people to discover a work through the construction of the characters, the unfolding of the stage area and the time of the production, sharing the dynamism of the performing arts, bringing together the artists and the audience in a total theatrical experience: these are the objectives of these Chronicles, which are expected to develop from season to season.
In 2015-2016 the "Chroniques de Fantasio " materialized in the "Vendredis de Jacques" (Fridays with Jacques) which allowed the public to grasp the development of the first production of the 2017 season, Offenbach's Fantasio conducted by Laurent Campellone and staged by Thomas Jolly.
In 2017 the Opéra Comique will invite its faithful patrons to accompany two productions of the 2018 season.
Chronicle on a creation by Joël Pommerat
After the success of the opera Au monde, drawn from his production by the Belgian composer Philippe Boesmans, Joël Pommerat comes to the Opéra Comique to write his first original opera libretto.
A unique opportunity to see an author in the making on stage and interacting with the performers.
The calendar of the rendezvous will be announced later at www.opera-comique.com
