Stephane Fuget Les Epopees

Ulysses and Monteverdi: passion and action at the heart of musical drama. Penelope sings of her endless wait, her hope to see the king of her heart again, while her suitors besiege her to take her hand and the throne. The return of Ulysses to Ithaca after twenty years of wandering brings the drama to a close. Travelling incognito disguised as an old man, he arrives at the palace for the contest that Penelope has arranged: whoever manages to bend Odysseus’ former bow will have the hand of the queen. The old man in rags presents himself to the court, and achieves his revenge... Stéphane Fuget conducts this masterpiece, using every instrumental spell to fulfil his great ambition: to restore to Monteverdi’s music and singing all of its ornaments and colors, thanks to a magnificent cast and their passionate support.
