General Information


World premiere

For this world premier the composer Philippe Boesmans, a prominent figure in the opera history of the last thirty years with Reigen, Wintermärchen, Julie and Yvonne, Princesse de Bourgogne, wanted the author and director Joël Pommerat to adapt his play Au monde, which La Monnaie is also presenting in its theatrical version this season, into a libretto for his new opera. This is an exceptional collaboration between two of the most important artists of our time. It will allow Philippe Boesmans to explore a new literary universe following those of Schnitzler, Shakespeare, Strindberg and Gombrowicz and allow Joël Pommerat to get involved in a second musical project after Thanks to my Eyes (based on his play Grâce à mes yeux) which he worked on with the composer Oscar Bianchi.
