Rarely can you see a work on the opera stage in which singers and dancers are of the same importance, with the story generated by their shared, mutual power of expression. Such is that case in the dance opera, Les Enfants Terribles, which Philip Glass based on the ultimate part of Jean Cocteau’s trilogy. Paul and Lise create an imaginary world they eventually cannot distinguish from realty, becoming its prisoners and victims. The work can be considered Cocteau’s testimony to the transcendental power of the imagination and creativity. In the opera, the singers and the dancers take turns narrating the events.
Says Dóra Barta, the production’s director and choreographer, about the composer: “Philip Glass’s music is very suitable for dance, and liberates the director. It opens a wide range of associations, and hence possibilities, for the creator. Everything he composes is almost transcendental, which is a gift for minimalist dance theatre. It facilitates productions that are rich in images, in sensuous content.”

Dance opera in French, with Hungarian and English surtitles.
