L'Ombre de Saint-Saenswith Philippe Beau

<< Shows

A shadowy melodrama aimed at adults and all those who wish to discover or devour the works of the composer.

In ‘L’Ombre de Saint-Saëns’, music meets shadows in an interior monologue revealing the existential doubts of an artist. Inspired by the music, writings and the life of Camille Saint-Saëns, this musical and visual fantasy produced by Sybille Wilson based on a text by Sylvan Coher is interpreted by magician and hand shadow artist Philippe Beau, an actor and a piano trio.
