A slice of life, a slice of laughter and a slice of music to garnish the canapé that comes with our urban apéritif! Have a spritz or a vermouth while we supply the entertaining company.
Apéropéra is a relaxed, fresh and unstuffy way to (re)discover a composer, a work, a topic, miles away from the usual lectures you get before the performance. Get ready for some good stories, from the past and especially the present.
And in between, there’ll be live music from the show (or in the same vein) per- formed by artists on the production!

About Makropoulos – 15 October 2020 6:30PM
The first Apéropéra of the Grand Théâtre de Genève’s season will be dedicated to otherness. Through the Czech melodies of the composer Leoš Janáček, in search of his “Diary of One Who Disappeared”, songs and music oscillate between images and colours, love and suffering, mists and burnt landscapes. The beginning of the evening tells the story of the stranger, the other, in Slavic accents, accompanied in pictures by Egyptian-Swiss director Youssef Youssef, who is featuring on the playbill of Geneva’s queer film festival Everybody’s Perfect. In partnership with La Plage.
Anita Jirovská, mezzo-soprano
