The two interludes and the scene from Wagner Dream are performed here as a tribute to Jonathan Harvey who passed away on December 4, 2012.

Wagner Dream, an opera composed by Jonathan Harvey in 2007, takes place when Wagner has a heart attack in the Vendramin Palace in Venice. The final moments of Wagner's life project us in the vision of an opera inspired by a Buddhist legend, an opera that the German composer imagined, but never wrote. The two interludes and the scene from Wagner Dream are performed here as a tribute to Jonathan Harvey who passed away on December 4, 2012. The reply to the dream of a Wagnerian dream is Pintscher's Bereshit, the first word of Genesis, the "beginning" of a new artistic era for the Ensemble intercontemporain.
