An arsonist at the Paris’ Athénée

From 2 to 12 March 2022, the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet in Paris will be ablaze with Monteverdi’s Il Nerone. The new production of Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea by Alain Françon takes this title in reference to the first time the work was given in Paris in 1647. The young artists in residence of the Académie de l’Opéra national de Paris will perform with Le Poème Harmonique under the ever enlightened musical direction of Vincent Dumestre. The production will then be repeated at the Dijon Opera and at the Maison de la Culture in Amiens.
