Opera as the World / Centre Pompidou-Metz (Exhibition)

Opera as the World witnesses the encounter between the visual arts and opera in the 20th and 21st centuries. Beyond the straightforward presentation of opera sets created by artists, the exhibition aims to shed new light on the resonance, and tensions, between opera and the Wagnerian legacy of the Gesamtkunstwerk (Total work of art concept) (“total artform”), exploring how the visual arts and lyric theatre have enriched one another and, at times, become sources of mutual, radical influence and inspiration. In this two-way relationship, opera is a fertile ground for experiment and the fomenting of new aesthetic and political sensibilities.

Through set designs and costumes, scenographic elements, large-scale installations and new works, Opera as the World combines sound and vision to showcase opera’s role as both a workshop for shared artistic aims and aspirations, and the embodiment of creative freedom. The exhibition charts alternative territory in our exploration of interdisciplinarity in art, from the experimental sets of early avant-garde productions such as Arnold Schoenberg’s Die glückliche Hand (“The Hand of Fate”, 1910-13), to scores that have become latterday repertory classics, such as Olivier Messiaen’s Saint François d’Assise, and more experimental, uber-iconic works such as Philip Glass and Bob Wilson’s Einstein on the Beach (1976).

View the exhibition from
June 22, 2019 - January 27, 2020
until October 31: Mon, Wed, Thur 10am–6pm, Fri, Sat, Sun 10am–7pm (closed on Tuesdays) / from November 1: 10am–6pm (closed on Tuesdays)

Madama Butterfly / Paris

The revival of Robert Wilson's signature production of Madama Butterfly, which originated at the National Opera Paris in 1993, features exquisite costumes by Frida Parmeggiani and choreography by the late Japanese artist and long-time collaborator of Wilson, Suzushi Hanayagi. Robert Wilson aimed at directing a refined version, outside of the all the "fake Japanese, cherry blossom and all of the traditional clichés on Japanese culture".

The production has been shown at The Netherlands Opera Amsterdam, The Bolshoi Theater Moscow, Los Angeles Opera and others, and remains in the Paris Opera's repertoire.

Endgame / Berlin

Like most of Samuel Beckett’s texts, Endgame deals with characters outside of society, waiting and looking in vain for something unknown in a nondescript, apocalyptical place. Its characters are bound towards each other by an invisible chain of co-dependency that knows no way out. Contrary to this bleak topic, it is a strikingly funny play with a number of comic elements, physical and verbal. Endgame was Robert Wilson's 10th production at the Berliner Ensemble since 1998.

This poignancy and consequence. This concentration. This severity. This humor. ... No sentimentality, but the echo of a world in turmoil.
— Der Tagesspiegel (Rüdiger Schaper), Dec. 4, 2016

The Messiah / Salzburg (Opening)

Oratorio in three parts for soloists, choir and orchestra by Georg Friedrich Händel edited by Mozart

Mozart’s German-language version of Handel’s Messiah is famous, though seldom heard. Written in 1789, at the request of baroque enthusiast Gottfried van Swieten, this profound arrangement of Handel’s best-known oratorio includes copious woodwind parts. Marc Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre are not only acclaimed exponents of Handel and Mozart; they also belong to the Mozart Week musical family.

To mark their return to the festival, their brilliant performance is combined for the first time with the art of Robert Wilson: a fascinating fusion of periods and styles on several levels.

Mary Said What She Said is the testimony of Mary Queen of Scots drawn from her letters about her involvement in some of the most notorious plots of her time.

Oedipus / St. Petersburg

Based on Oedipus Tyrannus (Οἰδίπους Τύραννος) by Sophocles, Robert Wilson first directed Oedipus in the 2018 season at the Grand Theater in the ruins of Pompeii. Then it was shown at the historic Teatro Olimpico, constructed by architect Andrea Palladio, in Vicenza.

The show is ritual, slow and elegant. Lights are beautiful and the majestic scene is lighted such as it appears at the same time light, grand and magical. The movements of the actors on the stage are geometrical. For Wilson, Oedipus is the tragedy of the light which blinds to show. An Oedipus without tragedy: a suggestive dreamlike vision. Wilson has accustomed us to his perfection.

I La Galigo / Jakarta

I La Galigo comes back to Jakarta after many years.

“I like working with an epic of this scale because the memory of the heroes is still present in the people of the village. It is a surreal world but yet it is real. The eyes and the hands of the performers become a concrete translation–with the colours, the sounds, the whispers, the perfumes–of the mystery and the divine. It is sensuality and beauty. There are very modern themes in the myth but the spectacle is mainly about the explosion of creativity. It is images, dance and music. The words are few: they are in the chant of the Bissu priest, the one who holds the secrets of the oral tradition of Sureq Galigo which guides the events between the sky and the earth.”
