LES HUGUENOTS Comes To Opera National De Paris Next Month

LES HUGUENOTS Comes To Opera National De Paris Next Month The opera Les Huguenots at the Opera National De Paris is running from Sept. 25 to Oct. 24.

Giacomo Meyerbeer's visit to Paris in 1825 was to revolutionize opera. By imposing the Grand Opera genre, the composer made the pivotal theme of 19th century operatic productions. The Huguenots is a monumental fresco featuring various impossible loves in the context of the Saint Bartholomew Massacre.

First performed at the Paris Opera, the work celebrated its centenary there in 1936, after more than a thousand performances, before being staged in the archives of the Palais Garnier - the "big shop". For these revival, Andreas Kriegenburg places these timeless conflicts of love and religion in an immaculate setting in which the costumes appear yet more flamboyant and the victims' blood more violently red.
