In partnership with the Opéra Comique

With the aid of rarely explored sources such as staging manuals (livrets de mise en scène), but examining the full range of theatrical parameters, this conference will review Gounod’s entire operatic output. With each work serving as the basis for a specific analysis, it will discuss the role that certain renowned performers (such as Pauline Viardot in Sapho) may have played in the staging; the link between instrumental passages and stage movement; set designs and costumes; and the circulation of the works and their productions.
