At the end of the XVIIIth century, a ruthless viceroy and his lenient court, rule over the Spanish conquest of Peru. Will the beautiful street singer Perichole take bribes from the King to eat her fill? Will she win her lover’s respect back? Will they manage to escape from their gilded cage?

La Périchole - La bande annonce

The romantic century is fascinated by courtesans. Offenbach borrows one from Mérimée who himself drew his inspiration from Peruvian history. The political onslaught turns into mockery, while the title role remarkably depicts a woman and the inalienable freedom of arts. Although this bittersweet comedy first disappointed comic opera lovers back in 1868, Hortense Schneider’s 1874 version received critical acclaim.

Stéphanie d’Oustrac will embody Valérie Lesort’s tipsy Perichole in this colourful and whimsical stage direction. She will be surrounded with cheerful sidekicks, all under Julien Leroy’s warm and precise musical direction. 

Musical direction Julien Leroy • Staging direction Valérie Lesort • With Stéphanie d'Oustrac, Philippe Talbot, Tassis Christoyannis, Eric Huchet, Lionel Peintre, Thomas Morris, Quentin Desgeorges, Marie Lenormand, Lucie Peyramaure, Julie Goussot, Julia Wischniewski • Choir Les éléments •  Orchestre de Chambre de Paris
