Giuseppe Verdi’s music continues to arouse the enthusiasm of audiences around the world. He also remains the greatest exponent of Italian melodrama, the symbol of a nation in the throes of reunification, the composer of a people rising up against tyranny. By remaining very specific, attached to his land, his country and his language, he became universal. What does this generous and powerful spirit represent for us today, at a time of identity-based withdrawal, fear, abandonment and despair? We invite Natalie Dessay to follow in the footsteps of the most popular of opera composers. Because only a singular artist, who embodies the excessiveness of passion and its paradoxes, can allow us to feel with the mind and understand with the heart the secrets of his art.
