In rehearsal with Patrice Chéreau

Interview with Peter Mattei — By Marion Mirande

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.
