With Patricia Petibon
Video filmed at the Royal Opera of the Palace of Versailles on 5 July 2020 for ARTE Concert.
I wanted to suggest to Patricia Petibon to revive the time of a program of heroines who are deeply endearing but also guilty in their actions. Crimes and hexes, in the 17th and 18th centuries, are often associated in the dramaturgy. So, Medea, embodied by Patricia in this program, mythical and complex character, multifaceted, loving and passionate, is also cruel and vengeful when human beings, and first of all her lover Jason, turn away from her and betray her.
