Hans Werner Henze’s “The Raft of the Medusa” is directly inspired by Théodore Géricault’s famous painting. The German composer sets to music the fate of 150 people who have been shipwrecked and abandoned to their destiny. 50 years after the first performance of the oratorio, the Italian director Romeo Castellucci underscores its immense modernity.
