Cantate : Lullaby

Cultural ,  Music ,  Concert ,  Show at Rochefort

  • She is Sylvia Plath. A woman prone to vertiginous depression, a wife impeccable yet abusive, a perfect and yet ambivalent mother, a credulous and worried lover, in the grip of a jealousy that will lead to absolute despair. Sylvia Plath will commit suicide on February 11, 1963.

    He is Ted Hughes, a man fascinated by the occult sciences and astrology, a complex character, in turn somber and worldly, fierce and ambitious. Married to Sylvia Plath, he is torn between his love for her and his irrepressible need for freedom. A wise widower, he will be so good at managing his wife's work that he will make her a myth. Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes are among the most important poets of the twentieth century.

    Lullaby cantata with three voices, inspired by the work of Sylvia Plath, the american poet meteor, tells an exceptional life where two poets incarnate through their works, sacrificing everything to writing.
    But these three voices speak three different languages: a monologue in French, saying the life and poetry of Sylvia, the memorial letters in English of her husband Ted Hughes written in his memory, and finally the music through American standards interpreted in English. look at the scene - like a modern coryphae.
    What keeps memory of the author of The Glass Bell? What part of biography irrigates his work? And reciprocally, what moment of life did Plath nourish her writing?
    In this kaleidoscope where poetry, music, letters, diaries mix, the work of Ted Hughes is one of the mirrors that will give us the answer. Written after Sylvia's death - in secret - Birthday Letters is the sublime funeral elegy, the transcendent memory of writing, the diary of mourning and love. A retrospective book of hours that tells us the absence and the life without Sylvia.
    This scenic cantata travels the life of an exceptional woman, thus recounting the experiences and doubts of an author shared between intense poetry and inner wrenching.
