Bohuslav Martinu: Julietta

Michel arrives in a small town, intent on finding the unknown girl he once heard singing at an open window. But is he the only sane man in a world where everyone else has lost their memory, or a madman trapped in a recurring dream from which there is no escape?

Based on a 1930s French surrealist play set in a poetical no-man’s-land poised between dreams and reality, Julietta is the operatic masterpiece of Martinu, the finest Czech composer in the generation following Janácek.

New production supported by The Bohuslav Martinu Foundation
