Resurrection - Gustav MahlerAix-en-Provence Festival 2022

The most popular of Gustav Mahler's symphonies, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen and staged by Romeo Castellucci. A very special production, which promises to stir up the audience at the Aix-en-Provence Festival.

A message from director Romeo Castellucci:

The action you are about to witness has the particular misfortune of containing images that, charged with violence, seem to be the cruel likeness of our near reality.

I imagined this work over a year ago.

No one could have foreseen this painful overlapping of art and reality, which today seems like an atrocious prophecy.

How to support today the unconscious exactness of these images on the stage?

But what to do in the face of the irretrievable that theatre represents?

It is essential to accept the pain produced by this concordance, in the light that Gustav Mahler’s Resurrection can represent.
