The virus interrupted Clarac-Deloeuil > le lab’s preparation of the new Mozart-Da Ponte-trilogy at the Brussels La Monnaie / De Munt in March right before opening the performance-series. Their staging of La Clemenza di Tito at the Opéra de Rouen Normandie in November – although being conceived in two different versions – once in the original and once corona-compatible – had no chance to be presented in front of an audience in spite of constant efforts.
Clarac-Deloeuil > le lab’s next project is now Britten’s Death in Venice at the Opéra National du Rhin. There’s nothing else for it but to hope that this production at the beginning of the New Year will be rendered possible.
Opening-night in Strasbourg on February 21, 2021.
We are glad to welcome the stage directors Jean-Philippe Clarac, Olivier Deloeuil and the brilliant team of Clarac-Deloeuil > le lab to our artists’ management.
„One must be absolutely modern“, wrote Arthur Rimbaud. With the aim of both evaluating their time as well as being part of their time, Jean-Philippe Clarac, Olivier Deloeuil and their team are exploring the world of multidisciplinary productions under the joint motto: opera, musical-theatre and concert as a tool for checking out what is topical at present.
Their work was interrupted by the virus in March when presenting the Mozart - Da Ponte - trilogy at the Brussels La Monnaie / De Munt. If the virus will permit it, they will be back to stage-work in November in a Covid-compatible version of La Clemenza di Tito at the Opéra de Rouen Normandie (opening-night on November 12, 2020), followed by Britten’s Death in Venice at the Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg. Two upcoming opera-productions which will for sure be absolutely up to date and exciting, just as productions of Clarac-Deloeuil > le lab are in general.
