Presentation

After the major successes of Peter Grimes and Billy Budd in his younger years, British composer Benjamin Britten chose to put Thomas Mann's famous novella Death in Venice to music, in what would be his final work. Assisted by his librettist Myfanwy Piper, who produced the adaptation of this work of fiction that is also a commentary on art, Britten created a mysterious, magical world in which the spectator experiences everything through the mind's eye of Gustav von Aschenbach, an aging writer who visits Venice and wonders whether his quest for beauty is misguided. Toby Spence, a singer familiar with Britten's music, plays the writer Aschenbach, while the seven characters he encounters along his journey are all performed by Scott Hendricks. Stage design wizzes Jean-Philippe Clarac and Olivier Deloeuil have teamed up with Jacques Lacombe to bring to life this testament to a genius of twentieth-century opera.
