Anne Sofie von Otter
Chaque fleur s’évapore ainsi qu’un encensoir
Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l’air du soir;
Valse mélancolique et langoureux vertige!

With her indie sessions in the company of Elvis Costello, her explorations of Baroque terrae incognitae and her jazz album with Brad Mehldau, Anne-Sofie von Otter’s musical curiosity is well established. For her recital based on, or inspired by, the poet of Les Fleurs du mal, the Swedish mezzo shows her taste both for French art song and chanson. Anyone who remembers her performance of Dido in Les Troyens in Geneva in 2007 knows that she is an inspired singer in the language of Baudelaire. We are delighted to welcome her back at the Grand Théâtre with a trio of musicians who are as “classical” as they are “popular”, for an extraordinary recital in which this seasoned artist will expand the boundaries of genres and audiences.
