Music by Georges Aperghis. Libretto based on Les Boulingrin by Georges Courteline
Commissioned by the Opéra-Comique : world premiere on 12 May 2010

Courteline’s drama is usually presented in a very bourgeois fashion. Yet, all his dramas display a climactic aspect accounted for by the music. In its outrageousness, the Boulingrins’s opposition about their unfortunate guest, parasite Des Rillettes, reveals the latent violence of many a fashionable conversation. Madness catches up the four protagonists and social circumstances before creeping into the scenery which from then on grows its own life. Sincerity makes social conventions burst into pieces. With an irresistible mixture of comedy and hell, Georges Aperghis and Jérôme Deschamps invent a musical drama in which the music, the scenery and tragedy merge into an explosive cocktail.
