Opéra Sans Diva

It is a well-known adage that those who are absent are always wrong. What is left of opera without its singers who carry it to the end of their voices?


For it is also the role of the orchestra to carry the music of the composer.

Whether the audience praises their performance with applause or sanctions it with booing, the audience of yesterday and today often reserves its attention for the lead singers, paying little attention to the libretto or even the music.

We propose to repair this injustice and to rehabilitate all these beautiful and unheard melodies…

For this Opera program, no diva, no coloratura, no baritone-martin, but a quartet of clarinets with multiple voices that does justice to some of the most emblematic pages of the operatic repertoire.
