Eros weeps, and in the sparkling tears appear the dark aspects of love. Conductor Raphaël Pichon – together with his Pygmalion ensemble and choir – and theatremaker Romeo Castellucci go back to opera’s roots for their brandnew production Le lacrime di Eros. Inspired by the creativity and unconstrained experimentation of Florence in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, they explore a topic that has been at the heart of opera since its very beginnings: love.
