This new production of L’Enfant et les Sortilèges is a direct response to what has happened in the world over the last few months.
The opera begins with a child being educated at home. The child is neglected and ignored by her parents and suddenly she is faced with a completely unexpected and unpredictable situation. The world is no longer quite what it seems; the characters she encounters are extraordinary, the environment she finds them in is unfamiliar and unsettling, and she learns that returning to a better version of her real world is something that she wants to fight for.
Each of these characters are US – practitioners from the world of opera, who have been catapulted into our own uncertain and precarious circumstances. This filmed production brings us all together – providing a creative focus, generating a company of performers and theatre makers who are working as a team to make a brand new show, reacting to and remembering the world as it is now.
We are delighted to be working in collaboration with the Concordia Foundation, a fantastic charity who are supporting the most in-need artists who have been affected with loss of work, earnings and stability.
The film premières at 8pm UK time on Monday 16 November 2020 on the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Youtube Channel and Marquee Arts.
