Présentation

Last season Vernier hosted the Grand Théâtre’s stage installation of a Philip Glass opera. Our partnership contin- ues this season with a new adventure by György Ligeti: Aventures followed by Nouvelles Aventures. Never heard of him? Of course you have… he’s the man behind three great Stanley Kubrick soundtracks (2001: A Space Odyssey, Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. But maybe those movies aren’t exactly mainstream… In any case, for this adventure, there will be no assigned seat numbers, the audience is free to roam as they please around the room. Not sure you heard it properly? No worries, we’re going to play it twice. Didn’t you know that the more you hear something, the greater the pleasure it gives you? This is the ideal opportunity to discover in a completely informal and relaxed way, a kind of music that goes straight back to how we make and articulate sounds. Eyes wide open and eyes wide shut as this strange creature mutates and changes as its sounds develop and collapse. An out-of-genre experience and for sure, an experience beyond the genre of opera.
