Festival LOOP 10 :"La lettre volée", an opera by Denis Bosse

The Purloined Letter - La lettre volée

Videopera

The videopera, filmed and projected live, follows the absurd pursuit of those in search of the letter. The only way to escape the madness is to use reason to find out the secret of this extraordinary letter. But what is reasoning? And how to reason correctly? Do mathematicians reason correctly? Or poets? Or the mad?

 

Six singers, the Sturm und Klang ensemble, the musical director Thomas van Haeperen, the young videographer Helga Dejaegher, students from École Supérieure des Arts, Arts2  the composer Denis Bosse, staged by Frederic Dussenne, are transformed into mathematicians, poets and madmen in this Videopera. They, thus, drag the audience along with them in a vertiginous, dramatic and existential mise en abyme.
