General Information

Description

New production

How long must Queen Penelope still wait for Ulysses' return? Although she unravels and redoes her weaving every day, her suitors are for ever urging her to choose a new husband. Fauré composed a sumptuous ode to conjugal fidelity set in an idyllic Greece and signed this "peplum" opera packed full of oriental dances, fierce battles and heroic prowess. It not only makes exceptional vocal demands on the title role, but also calls for a temperament steeped in tragedy.

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
