While waiting for the reopening of the theaters...

Spectator information

Dear spectators,
Weeks and months follow one another without bringing us, alas, any certainty as to an upcoming date for the reopening of the venues and concerts.

All the ticket holders of the shows that could not take place have been contacted by email for the modalities of postponement and reimbursement. For any further information, you can contact the ticketing service by e-mail relations-publiques@chatelet.com or by phone at 01 40 28 28 40.

In this very special context, we would like to thank you for your unfailing support and understanding towards us.

King Saul jealously welcomes the returning David, fresh from his defeat of Goliath. But Saul is misunderstood by his two daughters and his son, and this plants the roots of a drama exploring the murderous madness embraced by Saul.
This oratorio, a biblical drama based on the Books of Samuel, composed in 1739 by Handel at the height of his glory in England, has often been staged. Barrie Kosky’s version, produced by the Glyndebourne Festival in 2015, stood out for its colours and sparkling costumes set against a black background and a ground covered with earth. As Artistic Director for the Komische Oper Berlin, Barrie Kosky revisits repertoire works in a truly innovative way with audacity and intelligence. His “wild directing” (The Times) is “breathtaking” (The Guardian).

Produced by the Glyndebourne Festival
