With this new production of Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, Rakewell’s decent into hell is accompanied by a holy trinity: soloists with mozartian souls, an orchestra with a razor-sharp ability to cut to the heart of the score (the Orchestre de Picardie, with its new conductor, Arie van Beek) and a stage director, David Lescot, whose theatrical work has always shown an intense musical temperament.
Focus on russian painters, writers and composers at Opera de Lille, LaM and Théâtre du Nord.
Keep your ticket to get a preferencial rate for the Lanskoy retrospective at Lam (Villeneuve d’Ascq) and "Les âmes mortes" by Gogol at the Théâtre du Nord.
