Opera in 5 acts by Daniel-François-Esprit Auber, 1828. Libretto by Eugène Scribe and Germain Delavigne.

The work will be presented by Agnès Terrier 40 minutes prior to each performance.

From its premiere in 1828 at Paris Opéra then located at Rue Le Pelletier until the theater burnt down in 1873, La Muette de Portici topped the bill and spread over Europe, in part thanks to Wagner.

Breaking conventions, the work burns with a new dramatic strength. Scribe and Auber go as far as to give the leading roles to a ballerina and the choir and to stage a revolution: the republican uprising of the people of Naples led by the fisherman Masaniello against the Spanish occupation of 1647.

The subject is political, so is its reception. During its Brussels premiere in August 1830, the patriotic aria “Amour sacré de la patrie” (Sacred love of fatherland) prompts the audience to take to the streets. Within weeks Belgium becomes independent.

The Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels is our partner in mounting anew this exceptional work under the baton of Patrick Davin and the leadership of Emma Dante.

Musical direction, Patrick Davin • Staging, Emma Dante • With Elena Borgogni, Maxim Mironov, Église Gutiérrez, Michael Spyres, Laurent Alvaro, Tomislav Lavoie, Jean Teitgen, Martial Defontaine • Orchestra and choir du Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie
