King Py conquers the Châtelet

The white smoke was eagerly awaited and it is finally Olivier Py who has been appointed Director of the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

A great theatre and opera director, actor, author, director of the Théâtre national de l’Odéon from 2007 to 2012 and of the Festival d’Avignon from 2013 to 2022, Olivier Py is well known and often appreciated by music lovers who always recognise the intelligence of his approach to libretti. His name will undoubtedly revive the lustre of the Théâtre du Châtelet, but coincidence of the calendar, his next creation will take place at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, which will host his production of Stravinsky’s The Nightingale and Poulenc’s Les Mamelles de Tiresias from 10 to 19 March 2023.
