Confined and cut off from highlights that keep the emotions and spirit alive, we need a window on the world and the arts. To keep the link with you, our audience, we open GTG digital to present opera and ballet productions and above all to offer music, readings, reflections and statements that nourish the body and mind.
Each week from March to June 2020, GTG Digital proposed a focus on a theme of the current season. These contents were available free of charge for a limited time under the motto: “always close to you”. In the spirit of La Plage, a look beyond the works will be offered.
With the support of Adam and Chloé Said
Programming by week
Every week, enjoy a special focus on a production of the next season of the Grand Théâtre de Genève.
The Grand Théâtre Jeunesse is the end of la Plage for the whole family, a bit like a big parasol with towels of all sizes. Then in 20-21, you put on your sunglasses for a First Recital that has everything of a great, amazing Adventures and New Adventures and a world premiere family opera, The Tin Soldier by Jérémie Rhorer based on the famous Andersen tale.
Have you ever been inside the Grand Theatre? With your family or your friends, for a show or during Open House Day?
GTG digital will present you a thousand ways to discover the Grand Théâtre, both inside and outside.
From May 18 to 24, a production that caused critical acclaim when it was presented last January. Die Entführung aus dem Serail presented by the Grand Théâtre de Genève revisits the slightly outdated “turquerie” of the lyrical tradition with today’s critical view, a view deeply immersed in a world profoundly different from that of Mozart.
The return of the Huguenots to Geneva, directed by Marc Minkowski and staged by the duo Wieler-Morabito.
Choir, ballet, majestic scenery and exceptional vocals are brought together in a magnificent production of dance and opera presented last December at the Grand Théâtre de Genève.
In this production, presented last October, British director Phelim McDermott creates a staging that has immediate visual echoes with the true, fatal and murderous nature of war.
The mythical opera by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson passes through the lively and delicate hands of Daniele Finzi Pasca: four hours of dreaming, thinking, letting oneself be carried away, hypnotized by the relentless pace and the poetic gaze of the Compania. A production hailed by all the international critics, from Le Monde to Le Figaro and Opernwelt.
The company takes you on a musical journey with Minimal Maximal, to the Russia of fairy tales with The Nutcracker or the promise of a better world with Wahada. On tour or in Geneva, in company or in confinement, from April 6 to 12, the week will be dedicated to the dancers of the GTG and the teams around them.
This new work, never performed before, was scheduled to have its world premiere on Monday, March 30. An opera about exile and hope, composed by Christian Jost with Kornél Mundruczó as director.
