Presentation

To compel recognition against the official stages of the Opéra and the Comédie-Française, the Opéra Comique in the Age of Enlightenment worked wonders of ingenuity. At the big Parisian fairs, its troupe delighted a large public by alternately drawing from vaudeville, monologue, pantomime… From one of Louis Fuzelier’s successes, La Matrone d’Éphèse – or how love brings back to life a young grieving widow – singers, puppeteers and musicians revive these theatrical tribulations. Obstinate and somewhat impertinent, the Opéra Comique ushered in three centuries of operatic creation.

Presentation of the work by Françoise Rubellin and Arnaud Marzorati 40 minutes prior to each performance.

Performance duration: 1h20 with no intermission
