General Information

Description

Co-production with the Mint, Brussels and the Wiener Staatsoper.

Work based on the contrarian piece of the same name, Iwona, księżniczka Burgunda by Witold Gombrowicz.

Princess Yvonne is not a princess: she is ugly, apathetic and taciturn. Object of permanent mockery, it disturbs, it irritates to excess. The opera of Philippe Boesmans, commissioned by the Belgian composer by the Opéra national de Paris in 2008, is a work of its own: sordid and funny, of an incredible cruelty but also irresistibly seductive, it reveals to the person who look at all the darkness of the human soul. Brought to the stage by a disturbing staging by Luc Bondy, the score and the libretto retain all the dark humor and cynicism of the eponymous play by the playwright Witold Gombrowicz.

More information is available on the official website of the opera house.
