The Japanese composer Dai Fujikura and the choreographer/stage designer Saburo Teshigawara have created their opera version of "Solaris", creating a sort of "magic" space of the 21st century.

Opera in four acts, Premiere
Commissioned by the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Opéra de Lille, Opéra de Lausanne, Ensemble intercontemporain, and IRCAM-Centre Pompidou.
Performance in English, subtitled in French.

Solaris (Lit. "sunny" in Latin), the cult novel by Stanislaw Lem written in 1961, has fascinated film makers from Andreï Tarkovski to the American Steven Soderbergh. The surface of the planet Solaris, entirely covered by an ocean, hosts an intelligent extra-terrestrial life form. Using the vehicle of a science fiction adventure, Lem explores and meditates human behavior, hope, and the fantasies of tomorrow.

Thursday, March 5 and Saturday, 7, 2015, 7:30pm / Théâtre des Champs-Élysées
