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) performed by artists on the production!

About Floating Worlds

“An act or instant of floating”

Playing with gravity and the transience of bodies, the choreographer and dancer Javier Rodriguez Cobos and his alter ego musician Fabrizio Di Salvo take us on a journey through a list of intimate images, a succession of suspended moments for this apéropéra in ballet mode.
