Carmen is at the third rank of the must played operas across the world. Nevertheless, when Bizet put into music Prosper Merimée’s novel to present it at the Opéra Comique of Paris on 1875, this was a flop at the beginning. The incomparable writer, playwright and comedian Éric-Emmanuel Schimtthas interested himself on the journey of this composer. The story about a child who was genial at 17 years and suddenly ceased being it. A genius who was asphyxiated — by him and society — throughout all his adult life but that retrieved his flame at the age of 36 years, just before he died, before he died of it. For the Quebecois production illustrating the personal drama of Georges Bizet, the French author had the wonderful idea to join our major opera singer Marie-Josée Lord. We love Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt mind’s delicacy, passionate music artist that shares a particular sight on Carmen Opera and it’s composer, like a vintage radiography.

A musical spectacle of Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt

Staging, Lorraine Pintal

From february 26 tu mars 16 2019

A Théâtre du Nouveau Monde and Didier Morissonneau production. Quatuor mayor mode for soprano and author. In 2015, Eric-Emmanuel Schmith is touched by Loranie Pintal’s staging and scenic adaptation of Anne Frank’s diary. It was natural that the TNM director dive again into the creative universe of this author and his abounding imagination. What is more, the last year, when he came to present alone his Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleurs du Coran with a simplicity as admirable as touching, a true love story crystallized with the audience! Indeed, the entire Quebec is under the charm of the philosopher, novelist, filmmaker and theater man, of this humanist thinker who likes so much to tell stories kneaded with sparkliness and intelligence. Passionate of music and opera, Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt share the scène with the enchanting soprano Marie-Josée Lord, both of them guided by Laurraine Pintal, to carry us to the meeting of a precocious and sublime genius, Georges Bizet, who finally found his way at the age of 36 years with the creation of Carmen: yet, an infarct stroke him after the first act. Together, they retrace the upheaval path of this musical Genius that disappears too early to realize he had revolutionized opera and, furthermore, to realize he had created a new feminine myth.
