ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Les Mamelles de Tirésias by Poulenc finds its inspiration in the eponymous drama by Apollinaire created in 1917, three years after Stravinsky’s Le Rossignol. If Stravinsky’s work presents certain stylistic disparities related to the time of its maturation from 1908 to 1914, it remains imprinted with the spirit of his master Rimsky-Korsakov and especially that of the Golden Cockerel. Poulenc also took his time to refine the adaptation of the play by Apollinaire (one of the musician’s favorite poets) which lasted throughout the period of the Second World War. The musician takes malicious pleasure in pastiche different lyrical forms and incorporates certain modern rhythms such as jazz. The two works question in their own way the theme of appearance and powers, between the melodious bird and its mechanical double in Stravinsky and between man and woman in Poulenc. Under its aspect of surrealist pochade, Les Mamelles appears as a real social and even societal firebrand questioning, not without humor and cynicism, the place and role of women. A question that remains devilishly topical.
