The mask has always been an object of fascination for creative artists – a fascination which extends beyond the visual arts. Composers, film directors and writers have all fallen under the spell of imaginary world that the mask creates and conceals at the same time. Concerts, lyric shows, films and lectures (in French) all contribute to an understanding of its impact.

Music by André Messager

Emmanuelle Cordoliani, director

"I've two lovers, it's so much better because I make each believe that the other is the serious one!", a wonderfully flirtatious tune which guaranteed the success of this operetta.
L'Amour masqué with libretto by Sacha Guitry, together with Véronique (1898), features among André Messager's masterpieces. The endless theme of a woman's loves and lovers is exploited here with the famous verve and spirit of Sacha Guitry who produced the opera on 15 February 1923 at the Edward VII Theatre. This new production has been created with the support of the lyric department of the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris.

 

In collaboration with the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris.
