Book

Opera in two acts based on the novel by Yevgeny Zamyatin
Commission from the Opéra Comique

As they cannot give birth to a child, a woman and her husband decide to adopt an orphan girl. The teenager gets an unexpected place in their home and in their hearts.

In a suburb of Saint Petersburg, the wife and husband hardly speak to each other and silence is becoming heavy. The world imagined by the wife to overcome the sadness of her emotional life will go wrong while in this end of winter the water of the river is rising.

At the invitation of the Opéra Comique, Joël Pommerat wrote an original opera libretto for the first time and chose a subject from a novel by Yevgeny Zamyatin published in 1929. The “stage writer” had to share the development of the speech and timing of the production with composer Francesco Filidei (this being the latter’s second opera). Their close collaboration, this composition for the stage, together with the instrumentalists and vocalists, gave birth to a new eloquence expressing the density of an inner life.

The score of sounds, images and silence is staged by Joël Pommerat and performed by intense and haunted vocalists/actors conducted by Emilio Pomarico.
