L'inondation, les extraits

Transcription

Husband and wife hardly speak to each other. Silence, torn apart by the laughter of neighbouring families, has become unbearable. Overwhelmed with a strong feeling of guilt, the woman has built herself an inner world that becomes disrupted as the end of winter sees the river’s waters rise.

Back in 2019, at the invitation of the Opéra Comique, Joël Pommerat wrote his first libretto, adapting a short story by Zamiatine originally published in 1929.
The stage writer continuously shared the development of the speech and timing of the scenes with composer Francesco Filidei who was conceiving his second opera for the occasion. Their close collaboration, their tandem in collusion with the musicians and singers, gave birth to an operatic creation of a new verve, capable of expressing the muffled density of the soul.

This memorable score of sounds and images staged by Joël Pommerat returns to the Opéra Comique, with Leonard Garms conducting the intense and vibrant performers.

Opera in two acts based on the eponymous text written by Evgueni Zamiatine. Created at the Opéra Comique in 2019.
