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.



Ivo van Hove adapts Thomas Mann’s novel Death in Venice (1912). Together with actor and writer Ramsey Nasr, Ivo van Hove develops the character of this future literature Nobel Prize laureate in the grip of an artistic crisis and a case of writer’s block. At home in Munich, surrounded by his wife and the city’s bourgeoisie, Mann puts pen to paper and gives us Gustav von Aschenbach and his forbidden love for an underage boy.

New scores especially composed by Nico Muhly create musical transitions between Richard Strauss, Monteverdi, Webern or Schoenberg’ scores, ensuing a whirl of emotions while setting to music the torments of the characters and the pangs of creation.

Creation: Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, at the Théâtre Royal Carré (4th-13th April 2019) Co-production: Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, Barbican Center, Théâtre du Châtelet, Croatian National Theatre Zagreb
