As part of Measure for Measure, musical theater festival

Peter Sellars takes us into the dreamlike and mysterious world of composer Claude Vivier. L’Instant Donné, an ensemble associated with the Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil, is also embarking for this journey into the celestial spheres.

The little-known Claude Vivier is a shooting star of twentieth-century music, dying in 1983 at the age of 34. A student of Karlheinz Stockhausen, he is one of the most creative composers of the second half of the last century. Fascinated by Vivier’s vision, Peter Sellars, a major figure of world theatre, directs the American singers of a Roomful of Teeth in this production.
