The greatest project of the Belgian choreographer Alain Platel, a combination of opera, dance and theatre with Verdi and Wagner choruses, superbly performed by the Teatro Real Chorus.
C(h)œurs is an exploration of the emotions generated when the individual encounters the group, the dynamic of collective movements, and the public-private dimension, all highly relevant subjects given the current trends in modern society.
The authors who inspired the creation are: José Ortega y Gasset, Elias Canetti, Mario Vargas Llosa and Jonathan Littell.
A project by Alain Platel with music by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) and Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
