Coproduction Grand Théâtre de Genève / Komische Oper Berlin

Bizarre creatures emerging from the imagination of Dr John W Polidori and Mary Shelley create a gothic world intensified by Marschner’s sensitive music. Inspired by the Italian style and the German Singspiel, the work introduces modern aspects that strengthen the psychological dimension of the action and characters. The vampire, a creature locked outside the world of the living and the dead, seeks a home, and principally an identity, in a unique ambiance imbued with wild romanticism. The sacrificer becomes the sacrificed unless he can find the balance between Eros and Thanatos. Three virgins to be immolated in twenty-four hours…

Young Artists’ Corner

My popular advice for young singers: The very first masterclass I gave, I jotted down a few ideas of things I wish I had known when I was just out of college; that advice has ballooned into this Young Artists Corner throughout my career.
