Les Aveugles (The Blind)

Les Aveugles (The Blind)T1999216527
For his third chamber opera Swiss composer Xavier Dayer sets Maeterlinck's symbolist masterpiece Les Aveugles performed by the young singers from Paris Opera on a rare visit. One of Maeterlink's shorter works (soon followed by Pelleas and Melisande), Les Aveugles is the devastating, poetic tale of a group of the blind, slowly coming to terms with the loss of their guide. Dayer's score remains true to Maeterlinck's mysterious poetic world, where dreams and reality coexist.
Music Xavier Dayer (based on the play by [Maurice Maeterlinck])
