Live streamLive stream

Marc-André Dalbavie's 'Le Soulier de Satin' (The Sattin Slipper) is an opera in four days to a libretto by Raphaèle Fleury based on poems by Paul Claudel. It is set in a specific era—the Spanish Golden Age—during which humanity experiences its first bout of “globalization”. The subject for the Satin Slipper comes from a Chinese legend about two celestial stars in love who, each year, having travelled far, manage to come within reach of each other without ever being able to come together from the disparate sides of the Milky Way.
