Program notes

A Paris Opera commission, inspired by Paul Claudel’s celebrated stage play— from the spectacular Palais Garnier!

The Satin Slipper is a tale of forbidden love between Doña Prouhèze (played by the marvelous Ève-Maud Hubeaux) and Don Rodrigo (the great Luca Pisaroni). Though the duo’s love is the plot’s chief concern, however, the two rarely appear onstage together: Doña Prouhèze, indeed, seeks to save Don Rodrigo from an adulterous passion by pushing him to wander the world all throughout his life—the work takes place across decades and continents, creating an intense and vertiginous atmosphere that draws the spectator in little by little.
