Pénélope

NEW PRODUCTION



A lyrical poem in three acts by Gabriel Fauré
Libretto by René Fauchoi
Created at the Monte-Carlo Opera House on 4 March 1913


How long must Queen Penelope still wait for Ulysses' return? Although she unravels and redoes her weaving every day, her suitors are for ever urging her to choose a new husband. Fauré composed a sumptuous ode to conjugal fidelity set in an idyllic Greece and signed this "peplum" opera packed full of oriental dances, fierce battles and heroic prowess. It not only makes exceptional vocal demands on the title role, but also calls for a temperament steeped in tragedy.
