  • Work - Composer :Into the little Hill - George Benjamin
  • Opera house :Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet


With Camille Merckx and Elise Chauvin.

George Benjamin's first opera, thirteen years after its premiere in Paris, is taken up again: a captivating lyric tale with contemporary resonances.

In this childish and cruel tale, which recounts the story of the Hamelin flute player in the light of recent history, only two female voices (here the sopranos Camille Merckx and Elise Chauvin) hold all the roles: the narrator , the people, the minister, the stranger, the woman, the child. They are carried by the subtly crafted music of George Benjamin, luminous score for fifteen musicians. Alphonse Cemin, well known as a pianist of the ensemble Le Balcon, is at the head of the Carabanchel ensemble. In opening, judicious choice of Flight, part for flute of Benjamin which announces the atmosphere of the opera.

More information is available on the official website of the Theater.
