Come,come,come,come, beautiful angel. Come with me, will tou?

- La prostituée, Scène 1

Based on Arthur Schnitzler’s Reigen (round dance), Philippe Boesmans’ work is structured around ten amorous encounters. From the prostitute who opens and closes the round in the manner of a danse macabre, to the disillusioned and cynical aristocrat, destinies cross paths only to go their separate ways. There is no harmony between the protagonists and no permeability between social classes. Lyrical and acerbic, light and voluptuous, the music perfectly espouses the dialogues, slipping into the gaps within the text to bring out the underlying meaning of this violently powerful erotic human comedy. This new production brings together the singers, instrumentalists and craftsmen in residence at the Paris Opera Academy under the artistic direction of Christiane Lutz and the baton of the conductor Jean Deroyer.
