Since writer Carlo Collodi unleashed him from his imagination and Geppetto fashioned him from a piece of wood, the puppet Pinocchio has been constantly transformed, adapted and revisited. Now playright and director Joël Pommerat has made an opera character of him, in an ideal collaboration with composer Philippe Boesmans, whose richly coloured musical universe, seems tailor-made for the small wooden figure. He presents the character as a rude and insolent person, eschewing all sentimentality to reconnect with the harsh world that Collodi portrays in his book. Reflecting his conception of theatre as a company endeavour, Joël Pommerat entrusts all the roles in this lyrical tale to six singers in disparate costumes – cabaret fairy, circus director, bad guy – all brought to life by a director who also narrates this story that speaks to everyone, both young and old alike.

'Aix En Provence Festival
Palais de l'Ancien Archevêché 13100 Aix-en-Provence - France


For one night only, the excellent Viennese Klangforum ensemble – which we can hear from the orchestra pit for the creation of Philippe Boesmans’ Pinocchio – will be on stage to perform some contemporary music gems in a fusion of virtuosity and expressiveness. The programme includes solo works by the older and younger generations, alternating between solo and ensemble pieces, as well as a rendition of Berio’s irresistible Sequenza II.

Giacinto Scelsi : Okanagon for harp, amplified doublebass and tom-tom
Franco Donatoni : Argot two pieces for solo violin
Beat Furrer : Ira-Arca
Luciano Berio : Sequenza II for harp
Simone Movio : Logos II
