Notes and Editorial Reviews

This release features a brand new and unique opera production which is a combination of dance and opera by the renowned choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. Keersmaeker is acclaimed especially in Romanic areas. She has chosen to embody each of the characters through both a singer and a dancer. From the preconceived notion of constant and eternal love, the lovers shift progressively toward the more complex realization that feelings of love are more akin to perpetual motion. Philippe Jordan is featured here conducting the Orchestre de l’Opera national de Paris as an adept musical partner. This production was recorded live at the Opera national de Paris, Palais Garnier, in 2017.
