IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DIONYSUS : FESTIVITY, DRUNKENNESS AND MYSTERY
The Madrigal Ensemble of la Cité
Six vocal soloists including choirmaster Florence Roquelaure.
2 Sopranos: (Marylin Revel and Myriam Garcia), 1 Mezzo-soprano: Cécile Piovan, 1 Tenor: Christophe Juniet, 1 Baritone: Antonio Guirao accompanied on piano by Emilie Véronèse.
This young ensemble has elected to showcase in their repertoire the treasures of Occitanie, which will take you on a festive whirlwind full of twists and turns ‘In the footsteps of Dionysus’. The god of wine and festivity, he is also the unknown traveller who inflames body and soul. Sometimes comical, sometimes tragic, his pleasure-filled heritage can be found in the most beautiful pieces of the repertoire.
Come with us on this journey through the rich and diverse universe of Offenbach, Fauré, Berlioz, Bellini and Purcell.
This first concert of the 2018 season pays tribute to music, sculpture, sharing and conviviality.
For this first concert we wanted to continue our collaboration with the association "Les Marbrières de Caunes" and gather the time of a week music and sculpture by associating with "La Semaine des Marbres" and by organizing, at this occasion, on June 8th, at the Abbaye vault, the opening concert of the 2018 Classic Fridays season.
