Ri-te como Jacques
November 30 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
In this year that we celebrate the 200th anniversary of French composer Jacques Offenbach, Ensemble À la joie! pays homage to one of the biggest figures of the opera comique. In this staged concert a big challenge is proposed to the audience – travel through Offenbach’s music as He has travelled through life. Laughing, laughing at himself, laughing at others and with others. His work show us a musical, literary and artistic world which influenced many composers.
It is with Offenbach that we find the classic and eternal lovers Orpheus and Eurydice absolutely bored and disgruntled when sentenced to a life together. Here laugh is free and the seriousness isn’t confused with depth: Opera is for everyone and treated by you.
