An international production of the Comédie de Genève, which was first presented in the Grand Opera d’ Avignon. Based on the work of Christa Wolf, the music performance presents the moment just before Cassandra, defeated by gods and people alike, falls into the hands of the Achaeans. In the little time she has left, Cassandra tells her story and her sufferings as a child, a lover, a prisoner and a woman.
Director Hervé Loichemol showcases the strength of his heroine, while composer Michael Jarrell dresses the performance with different music genres. Fanny Ardant, who has worked with some of the most distinguished European directors, takes on the role of Cassandra and her exquisite performance confirms her reputation as one the best French actresses.
