Opéras I, cauchemars, drogues et hallucinations (Le Timbre d’argent et La Princesse jaune)

Aix-en-Provence - Art lyrique - Monday 6 December 2021 at 6 pm. - Free

De la douzaine d’opéras que Saint-Saëns a composés, seul Samson et Dalila s’est inscrit au répertoire. Dédaigné même de son vivant, un tel corpus, à la fois ancré dans des stéréotypes voués à l’extinction et souvent parfaitement original, mérite réexamen. Cauchemars, drogues et hallucinations sont le fil conducteur de ses deux premiers ouvrages lyriques : La Princesse jaune qui joue avec fantaisie sur le japonisme à la mode et Le Timbre d’argent, mêlant métamorphoses, commedia dell’arte et fantasmagorie à la Hoffmann. Tout un monde, lointain et proche.
