“The story takes place a long time ago. Following an old dispute between the gods, the country is plagued by drought and famine threatens the mortals. People invoke, pray, procession, question dreams, diviners and pythias… Nothing is done. Until the king decides to resort to “cosmic sympathy” in a huge collective rite of imitation of storm and thunder and thus dares to defy the deities.
In three acts, Meteoriques is a joyful and cruel fable. It is set in the time of myth, but its resonances with our current ecological situation bounce off and splash our certainties.
Conceived for children’s choirs, school orchestra, amateur orchestra, professional singers and instrumentalists, the work, under the musical direction of Sébastien Boin, distributes beautiful roles to each of the protagonists and is full of poetic, theatrical and sound inventions. A creation with a political and philosophical tone”
