Three years after the creation of Médée, Krzysztof Warlikowski and Christophe Rousset were together again at LaMonnaie for the revival of one memorable production whose staging reinforces the violence, tension and cruelty ofthis tragedy.Whilst this work by Cherubini is considered part of the 'opéra-comique' genre, it is only due to the presence of spokendialogue, which has been modernised here in the Polish stage director's interpretation.Written in 1797, Cherubini's faithful version of Euripides' ancient tragedy is one of the most savage and powerfulworks of the opera repertoire, relating the cruel vengeance of a wounded woman for whom infanticide seems to bethe only solution to her humiliation in love. As a continuation of Gluck's music, Cherubini's work is of boundlessemotion, at once a refined, terrifying and desperate portent of a tragic outcome.
