Amphithéâtre Bastille - from 07 to 08 December 2017

1h00 no interval


In few words:

Schönberg’s delicate lyrical epic is recounted here through the genre of bunraku, a tradition form of marionette theatre known in Japan for the last three centuries. In a Japanese tea house, Pierrot is in love with Columbine but fears the terrible Cassander who loves her too. They can only love each other in secret. Becoming jealous and violent, Pierrot embarks on a long and terrible descent into hell, where only the moon can illuminate a new path for him.

The programme opens with a video accompanying Hans Eisler’s emblematic work, Fourteen Ways to Describe the Rain, created to underline the musical score and lead the audiences towards the atmosphere of Pierrot Lunaire.
