OPERA

Passion

Pascal Dusapin & Sasha Waltz

The season opens with the Belgian premiere of this production, which was acclaimed by audiences during its world premiere at Théatre des Champs-Elysées. Composer Pascal Dusapin and choreographer Sasha Waltz invite you to an encounter in the world of the dead, between two beings who had lived an impossible love. Passion calls upon dance through ‘movements of the soul’ which bring to life the vibrant and sensual lamento sung by Her and Him. Pascal Dusapin has asked choreographer Sasha Waltz to stage Passion, with the extraordinary singers Barbara Hannigan and Georg Nigl, as well as the dancers from the Sasha Waltz & Guests company.

What’s more, Lilith will be performed in the trendy Spirito Martini club and electro musician Stijn will open and conclude the evening with a DJ set in which he mixes funky tunes with classical music!

The music theatre Lilith, named after Adam’s first wife who refused to be subservient to him, took off at the Rotterdam Festivals and sold out at the Holland Festival. This promising musical performance has received nothing but positive reviews:

“A wonderful musical tale. […] This opera is a little festival gem.”
(Max Arian – Theaterkrant)

“Lilith, staged by McFadden, is a fertile experimental ground for all that music theatre is and could become.” (Mischa Spel – NRC Handelsblad)

“It has quite a distinctive and a very beautiful sound which will leave you wanting to hear more in the hour the performance takes.”
(Max Arian – Theaterkrant)

Sasha Waltz & Guests

Etant que spectateur de le Monnaie, Sasha Waltz n’est pas une inconnue pour vous. En 2008, la Monnaie a présenté sa première production d’opéra Dido & Aeneas (Purcell), en 2010 sa mise en scène de Medea (Dusapin) et la saison dernière Matsukaze (Hosokawa).

 

Pour le dernier rendez-vous danse de la saison, la Monnaie vous invite à retrouver Sasha Waltz. La chorégraphe allemande développe avec Continu une œuvre spectaculaire pour 24 danseurs en reprenant des propositions qu’elle a conçues au cours des dernières années pour des musées, le Neues Museum à Berlin et le MAAXI à Rome. Une mise en mouvements impressionnante des relations entre le groupe et l’individu, entre deux individus dans le couple, entre le couple et le groupe, et entre des individus dans un groupe. Une mise en espace tout en contrastes où dominent le noir et le blanc, et quelques traces de rouge…

Sasha Waltz & Guests

Als toeschouwer van de Munt is Sasha Waltz geen onbekende voor u. In 2008 haalde de Munt haar eerste operaregie Dido & Aeneas (Purcell) naar Brussel, in 2010 haar enscenering van Medea (Dusapin) en vorig seizoen Matsukaze (Hosokawa).

 

Voor de laatste dansvoorstelling van het seizoen, nodigt de Munt u opnieuw uit voor een voorstelling van Sasha Waltz. Met Continu creëert de Duitse choreografe een spectaculaire voorstelling voor 24 dansers uit dansfrases die ze de laatste jaren voor diverse museumprojecten ontwikkelde – onder meer voor het Neues Museum in Berlijn en voor het MAAXI in Rome. Ze herwerkte deze tot een indrukwekkend onderzoek naar de relaties tussen het individu en de groep, tussen twee individuen binnen het koppel, tussen het koppel en de groep en tussen individuen binnen de groep. In de ruimtelijke scenografie domineert het contrast tussen zwart en wit, met enkele sporen van rood.

OPERA

Il Trovatore

Giuseppe Verdi

Last Tickets

Whether it be Moscow or Paris, Madrid or Amsterdam, Aix-en-Provence, Berlin or Munich, in recent years the young Russian director Dmitri Tcherniakov has been amazing audiences with his surprising, stimulating and unexpected approach to the opera repertoire. With his astonishing talent he is able to persuade even the greatest sceptics that opera still remains a relevant art form in the present day. He has dreamt of staging Il Trovatore for a long time. La Monnaie is now offering him the chance to give shape to this dark chronicle of tragic love, jealousy and revenge. We cannot escape our oppressive memories and nightmares. After Last season’s Les Huguenots, Marc Minkowksi will once again be conducting our orchestra in this very promising production.

A Stage with a View – Anna Enquist

In connection with Il Trovatore, Anna Enquist is coming to Brussels for a conversation about her recent work and themes that play a major part in both her novels and Verdi’s opera: parental love, passion and abandonment. In 1994 the Dutch novelist, psychoanalyst and poet published her successful first novel Het Meesterstuk (The Masterpiece), a passionate novel of artists and families inspired by Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

Together with Elisabetta from Kiss & Drive, witness the terrible tragedy in the family of the Count di Luna. All this takes place in three stages: a ‘before’ as an introduction to this Verdi masterpiece and to get to know Tcherniakov’s world, the opera performance itself, and a lively ‘after’ with Kiss & Drive and one of the singers from the production.

Continu

Sasha Waltz

Tickets

For its last dance performance of the season, La Monnaie has programmed an ambitious piece of choreography by Sasha Waltz, to music by three great twentieth-century composers: Edgar Varèse, Iannis Xenakis and Claude Vivier. She has adapted them into an impressive study of the relationships between the individual and the group, between the two individuals that make up a couple, between the couple and the group and between the individuals in the group. The contrast between black and white, with a few traces of red, dominates the stage setting.

Winterreise

Tickets

A winter trip at the start of summer? Winterreise is a unique cycle of 24 songs that Schubert created from poems by Wilhelm Müller. Its indisputable quality makes this cycle a lasting reference for all the composers who came after him and set poetry to music. Müller’s cycle evokes solitude, a snow-covered landscape, an impossible love, and also death, a dangerous travelling companion. Several months before his death, Schubert composed some truly irresistible melodies that give these poems an apt and uncomfortable perspective. The baritone Gerald Finley and the pianist Julius Drake will perform this moving cycle.

20 June 2012 at 8 pm – La Monnaie
