Guest director, Romeo Castellucci, is focusing on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s last unfinished work, the staging of which is a masterpiece and a hymn to life.
Together with the conductor, Raphaël Pichon, and the Pigmalyon ensemble, composed of orchestra and choir,Castellucci has succeeded in creating a show in which the becoming and the dying merge together, intoxicating the spectator. Dances in circles, battles of colours, materials and images oscillate between celebrations of what is to come and solemn farewells. In this beautifully staged version, the choir plays the central role.
For Castellucci, the Christian hope for salvation in the afterlife becomes the necessary new beginning for the next generation.
