In Leoš Janáček’s opera From the house of the dead, Peter Mattei
performs the role of Shiskov. A role he has already sung in New York and Milan,
under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen, in Patrice Chereau’s production performed
today at the Opéra Bastille. The Swedish baritone offers his recollections
of working with this great man of theatre: memories as vivid as this production
in which the creator lives on.
