The Eye and the Ear

Mathieu Bauer

Mathieu Bauer brings the musical atmosphere of Nino Rota’s legendary Fellini films to the stage. An immersion in the flamboyant and melancholic universe of the two maestros.


“The Eye” is Federico Fellini, filmmaker of excess and imagination. “The Ear” is Nino Rota, a composer touched by grace. Together, they elevated cinema to the sublime. Mathieu Bauer and the musician Sylvain Cartigny propose a journey through these twenty-six years of collaboration interspersed with masterpieces.
