Creation

DAFNE

madrigal opera

Aurélien Bory, in collaboration with Geoffroy Jourdain, musical director of the ensemble Les Cris de Paris, recreated the first German opera in September 2022: Dafne.

The score of Dafne, composed by Heinrich Schütz has been lost, only the libretto by Martin Opitz has survived. The German composer Wolfgang Mitterer has composed a new score for this production. On this story, he wrote an opera-madrigal, for 12 singers and electronics.

In this action, centered on the escape of the nymph, Aurélien Bory, who signs the scenography and the staging direction, designed the set to try to show this “something that escapes us” specific to each metamorphosis.

This show will be created at the Athénée – Louis-Jouvet theater from September 29 to October 5, 2022. The show will then go on tour, notably in Reims, Tourcoing, Dijon, Toulouse next season.
