The old world is dying, the new world struggles to be born: this clair-obscur is the time of monsters.

The sun shining in Richard Strauss’s Tomorrow and the twilight of his Four Last Songs. The enigmatic and sensual La Flûte enchantée from Maurice Ravel’s Shéhérazade. A dive into the forest with Alexander von Zemlinsky’s Waldgespräch and Ernest Chausson's Le Colibri, as well as pieces by Johannes Brahms, Ernst Bloch and Louis Spohr...

After performing in our Requiem, soprano and harpist Sandrine Piau is returning to La Monnaie for a recital dedicated to a personal obsession of hers: the conflict between light and darkness. Accompanied by the Ensemble Contraste, she has an evening of mystery, nature and poetry for you, bringing together touching and contrasting mélodies.
