Krzysztof Warlikowski counts among the reformists of dramatic language in Europe. Through his productions he has changed the interpretation of Shakespearean drama in a spectacular way. Whether it involves classical or modern texts, he always reveals themes which resonate with today's world and the contemporary fears and anxieties affecting it. He leads the audience into an original process exploring sense and meaning, notably with the aid of cinematographic references or the original use of video. Highly active in the field of opera, he has learnt to infuse the genre with his theatrical discoveries. Parisian audiences first discovered him in 2006 when he directed Iphigénie en Tauride at the Palais Garnier. In that case, he depicted Iphigénie as an old woman among a group of elderly people in a retirement home, reminiscing on her life—a life sacrificed dramatically by her family. Other productions would follow, including The Makropulos Affair, Parsifal, King Roger (Szymanowski), Bluebeard’s Castle/ La Voix humaine and the original French version of Verdi’s Don Carlos, where once again a family tragedy is exposed.
