El Niño

© NC

A phantasmagorical chamber opera based on eight of Federico García Lorca’s most important poems.

Just as one sometimes gets lost in the depths of one’s dreams, the poet, transported to the heart of his own creation, finds on stage his phantasmagorical, surrealist characters, the fruits of his own madness? In the manner of a strange initiatory ritual, they end up chasing him away. However, he returns, transfigured by his wanderings in the “land of the unliving”, to accomplish a series of tests of a mysteriously expiatory nature.

Performance for bass baritone, instrumental ensemble and electronics. In co-production with the Festival d’Île de France.
