  • An audiovisual creation by Etienne Guiol was made specifically for this concert and will be projected throughout the concert
  • It took Stravinsky 5 years to finish "The Nightingale", the writing of his opera having been interrupted by the commission of a ballet for the Ballets Russes the magnificent "Firebird".
  • Shunned by the public, Stravinsky will transform his opera in a symphonic poemThe Song of the Nightingale
  • The story is told here by the actress Julia Knecht
  • It is no longer the soprano's trills that bring to life the trials and tribulations of the little nightingale, whose melodious song is abandoned by the Emperor of China in favor of that of a mechanical nightingale, but the steps of a star dancer. The soprano, having nothing left to sing, tells us the fate of the workand the decisive meeting it brought about between the composer and the young choreographer George Balanchine.
