Le Lacrime di Eros


Eros cries, and in the glistening of his tears, the dark sides of love appear. For their brand-new production Le lacrime di Eros, theatre-maker Romeo Castellucci and conductor Raphaël Pichon go back to the roots of opera.

They draw inspiration from the creativity and experimental freedom that reigned in Florence in the late 16th and early 17th centuries to explore the subject that has long been central to opera: love.
