Voyage to the Opera – MC2 – 17th & 18th Nov.

For its first collaboration, the orchestra and the MC2 offers a unique show with choir and soloists, a “Voyage to the Opera”, presented by Antoine Pecqueur, to discover and rediscover the most beautiful arias in the history of opera.

MC2, the Grenoble University Symphony Orchestra and the Fabrique Opéra choir, conducted by Patrick Souillot, offer a musical game on the theme of lyrical art. The most beautiful way to discover opera. For everyone !

The musical quiz is back at MC2, with this year’s theme opera. Under the direction of Patrick Souillot, the Grenoble University Symphony Orchestra, soloists and the choir of the Fabrique Opéra perform extracts from the lyrical repertoire: Fidelio by Beethoven, Roméo et Juliette by Gounod, or Tosca by Puccini, whose plot features a painter, echoing the theme of the season. Throughout the excerpts, the presenter Antoine Pecqueur, music advisor to MC2, asks the audience questions: in what language is this opera written? What instrument accompanies the singer? What is the role of the choir? Questions for young audience and experienced one, who are invited to answer live. An interactive and fun game to revisit or discover the history of lyrical art for 1:15h : learn while having fun!
