  • The Carnival of the Animals 2019

    Palais de Rumine

    Dear children, dear parents, the Zoological and Musicological Academic Society has invited us to present to you the Carnival of the Animals! “Professor Cherix, I presume?” “Lady Vivaldi, I suppose!” And the sun rises on the world of animals! Wild donkey hairs come together on the tip of Lady Vivaldi’s bow, hen eggs are used for playing paddleball on the back of the violin, the cello makes infrasonic rumbles that only the elephants can hear, the vegan piano shows its politically correct colours to the old ivory-keyed pianos, turning into a giant aquarium where multi-coloured fish swim and plastic bags float. Professor Cherix takes a walk through the animal world. He tells the legend of the hummingbird that, drop by drop, "does its bit" to put out a forest fire in the Amazon. He also talks about the intentional introduction of swans into our lakes to brighten up the lives of the citizens, swans that the City of Geneva used to offer to other cities as a friendly gesture. Lady Vivaldi describes how the families of instruments are like the families of animals, has fun with the tortoise and elephant dances, and encourages the children to draw imaginary triangles to beat the triple time of a waltz. Amongst laughter, surprises and enchantments, the Carnival of the Animals is an enjoyable and educational performance for the whole family to savour that celebrates the beauty of the animal and musical worlds through the exuberant antics of Lady Vivaldi and Professor Cherix.> complete show’s description

  • The Seniorales

    Casino de Montbenon

    An innovative, interactive and multigenerational cultural outreach project around the show Dance with the Violin! The first hip hop dance performance to include senior citizens, the concept brings Dance with the Violin! together with The Seniorales to take up the challenge of commingling today’s best hip hop artists with older generation dancers. Choreographed on classical music with integrated rap elements, Dance with the Violin! is presented in the context of the hip hop festival Au-delà des Préjugés, in partnership with Connaissance 3—l’Université des Seniors. Through a series of preparatory workshops led by violinist Isabelle Meyer, choreographer Loïc Dinga and a certified rhythmic instructor, this pioneering project helps senior citizens maintain sensorimotor and socio-affective skills by engaging with younger generations in a common enterprise. Encouraging individual expression within a multigenerational group, the public performance of Dance with the Violin! on the Casino de Montbenon stage will be the culmination of a questioning attitude towards society’s vision of senior citizens. So, senior citizens, cultural actors? With the support of the Fondation Leenaards. In partnership with Connaissance 3 and the Festival Au-delà des Préjugés.> complete show’s description

  • The Eternel Feminine: The Trial

    Théâtre de l’Octogone

    Set up like a court trial, this production is based around musical works concerning female archetypes such as Carmen, Marguerite in the opera Faust, the Virgin Mary, Norma, Salome, Scheherazade and many others. The attorney, incarnated by Charles Poncet, defends the myth of the Eternal Feminine or on the contrary presses charges against the fable, making parallels with famous modern trials that made a mark on public opinion and the press. Would Don José be acquitted today of Carmen’s murder as a justifiable crime of passion? Would Marguerite be indicted for infanticide? As for the Valkyries, would they have been accused of war crimes? Would the tone of the violin, the voice of the defendant, persuade the jury—musicians and audience—of the injustice meted out to the Eternal Feminine?> complete show’s description

    Théâtre de l’Octogone

    Babar the little elephant and Ferdinand the little bull are two famous tales that have brightened the lives of generations of children. The first was a global success, translated into 27 languages, and the second inspired Walt Disney to make the animated cartoon Ferdinand the Bull. Two stories that composers Poulenc and Ridout chose to put into music, using the piano or the violin to sing and recount the adventures of our two heroes. By progressing from child to adult and from animal to man, Babar and Ferdinand illustrate classic rites of passage with which children can readily identify. Two stories of animals facing the world of mankind and trying to find their place...or not!> complete show’s description

    These talks by philosopher Luc Ferry reflect a French musical repertoire inspired by the myths of love found in literature. “To die for ideas, fine,” sang Georges Brassens before ironically adding: “That’s all very good but for which ones?” For God, for country, for the revolution? Today nobody would die for these old outdated images of the sacred, only for close or loved ones would one sacrifice oneself. It signals a revolution, that of love guillotining the marriage of convenience and giving birth to secularity and the sanctification of the human. A sanctification of the human that Ferry has reinvented in the humanist rather than the religious sense. Could the revolution of love make man a new sacred figure?> complete show’s description

    Babar the little elephant and Ferdinand the little bull are two famous tales that have brightened the lives of generations of children. The first was a global success, translated into 27 languages, and the second inspired Walt Disney to make the animated cartoon Ferdinand the Bull. Two stories that composers Poulenc and Ridout chose to put into music, using the piano or the violin to sing and recount the adventures of our two heroes. By progressing from child to adult and from animal to man, Babar and Ferdinand illustrate classic rites of passage with which children can readily identify.

  • The Carnival of the Animals

    Centre des Congrès Crans-Montana

    Tonight, the world of animals lifts the veil on the world of music. Onstage this evening is the Carnival of the Animals! Since childhood, Karim has been fascinated by music: his dream is to become an orchestra conductor. With the help of Isabelle the violinist, he discovers a world he thought he could never reach. Isabelle lifts a veil with the tip of her bow to uncover a musical book, the story of Ferdinand the Bull. Marvellous! The music is telling a story! Then our fairy begins to sing The Ox on the Roof, a Brazilian tune that comes straight from the Rio Carnival. Another veil is lifted and a pianist appears. Fantastic! The music makes everyone want to dance! Karim is ecstatic. But that’s not all. He wants to be a conductor, and he will be a conductor! Musicians materialize from all sides. With their instruments, they imitate donkeys, kangaroos and elephants, becoming the accomplices and guinea pigs of our apprentice conductor. And so the evening becomes the Carnival of the Animals. No, Karim, tortoises can’t dance the French Cancan! No, Karim, it isn’t twenty thousand notes under the sea! Learn the music before you become a fossil! The path is long, sprinkled with pieces labelled Presto Furioso and Allegro Ridicolo... Will our friend attain his dream? Will his musical companions be discerning enough to encourage him on his quest and lift the veil on the mysteries of music? From age 7> complete show’s description

Borrowing the Baroque master’s writing techniques, the man with the accordion here carries on the tango tradition, or the heat of the sun alongside the dark of the abyss. Hips swaying rhythmically on a stage of tears and regrets, Lucila Cionci and Rodrigo “Joe” Corbata, a magnificent Argentinean dance couple with an international career, display the soul of Tango with madness and feverish obsession while injecting a strong dose of charm. With its sublimated provocations and ostentatious vulgarity, the street origins of tango can always be felt in Piazzolla’s compositions. With his evocations of a better world through the language of nostalgia, he grafts his love of refined Western music onto Argentina’s thumping beat. Dark with melancholy, the Four Seasons is at bottom a tragic declaration, with musicians and dancers imbued with its magnetic, versatile and captivating passion.> complete show’s description

    Casino de Montbenon

    Look around you! A multitude of colours, textures, materials, objects and living creatures. This variety is due nonetheless to the manner in which a small number of elementary particles are organised. Music is similar, seven notes are enough to create all the symphonies in the world. By putting notes into order with respect to time, Mozart created an emotionally engaging abstract language. By allowing matter to organise itself into complex beings, our universe witnessed the birth of Mozart... From the Big Bang to Mozart, astrophysicist Georges Meynet invites us to discover a very small part of this extraordinary saga. We will see that stars constitute the philosophers’ stones of the galaxies, cosmic cauldrons where the necessary elements for life are born. We will also learn that nature can be mischievous and full of paradoxes! Following on from Mozart & the Stars 2006, after an idea by Hubert Reeves and Karine Lethiec.> complete show’s description

    A family is forged on the inside, during its meals. Eating together means exchanging emotions, building a common culture, making bonds. In Dinner is Served!, Jean-Claude Kaufmann tells the story of seven family meals, from the shopping trip until the dinner itself. Constructed around Martinu’s composition La Revue de Cuisine, the menu of this concert-conference follows the unfolding of this dance around meals in the shape of a photographic investigation of seven families. Under the amused gaze of our sociologist, Dinner is Served! intimately mixes several tales expressed by images, words and of course music. The frenzied movements and clamour of utensils that define the act of cooking emerge into a unique work of culinary art. Every cook turns into an alchemist who transforms all he touches into gold. The humblest fork then becomes a chatterbox... Inspired by the book Familles, à table!> complete show’s description

    Casino de Montbenon

    In the Estaciones Porteñas (Four Seasons of Buenos Aires), Astor Piazzolla pays homage to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Borrowing the Baroque master’s writing techniques, the man with the accordion here carries on the tango tradition, or the heat of the sun alongside the dark of the abyss. Hips swaying rhythmically on a stage of tears and regrets, Lucila Cionci and Rodrigo “Joe” Corbata, a magnificent Argentinean dance couple with an international career, display the soul of Tango with madness and feverish obsession while injecting a strong dose of charm. With its sublimated provocations and ostentatious vulgarity, the street origins of tango can always be felt in Piazzolla’s compositions. With his evocations of a better world through the language of nostalgia, he grafts his love of refined Western music onto Argentina’s thumping beat. Dark with melancholy, the Four Seasons is at bottom a tragic declaration, with musicians and dancers imbued with its magnetic, versatile and captivating passion.> complete show’s description

  • The Carnival of the Animals

    Casino de Montbenon

    Tonight, the world of animals lifts the veil on the world of music. Onstage this evening is the Carnival of the Animals! Since childhood, Karim has been fascinated by music: his dream is to become an orchestra conductor. With the help of Isabelle the violinist, he discovers a world he thought he could never reach. Isabelle lifts a veil with the tip of her bow to uncover a musical book, the story of Ferdinand the Bull. Marvellous! The music is telling a story! Then our fairy begins to sing The Ox on the Roof, a Brazilian tune that comes straight from the Rio Carnival. Another veil is lifted and a pianist appears. Fantastic! The music makes everyone want to dance! Karim is ecstatic. But that’s not all. He wants to be a conductor, and he will be a conductor! Musicians materialize from all sides. With their instruments, they imitate donkeys, kangaroos and elephants, becoming the accomplices and guinea pigs of our apprentice conductor. And so the evening becomes the Carnival of the Animals. No, Karim, tortoises can’t dance the French Cancan! No, Karim, it isn’t twenty thousand notes under the sea! Learn the music before you become a fossil! The path is long, sprinkled with pieces labelled Presto Furioso and Allegro Ridicolo... Will our friend attain his dream? Will his musical companions be discerning enough to encourage him on his quest and lift the veil on the mysteries of music? From age 7> complete show’s description

  • Images of Sounds

    Casino de Montbenon

    Imagine some water in a basin. Imagine some musicians performing. Imagine a camera filming the movements of the water generated by the tonal vibrations of the artists. Each sound adjusted to a distinct frequency creates a precise image. Each frequency imposes a different layout upon an arrangement of sand grains, a geometric design of incredible beauty. The Feldman-Courvoisier Duo, composed of Swiss pianist-composer Sylvie Courvoisier and American jazz violinist Mark Feldman, joins up with the Zuber-Meyer Duo in a programme where compositions and improvisations are intertwined. From Bartok to Courvoisier, this is the meeting of two duos from different musical circles: the first explores the world of jazz and current musical trends, while the second works within the extensive classical repertoire. Two duos that finish by playing all together in a piece by Sylvie Courvoisier, and wherein each artist gives a personal touch in the form of short improvisations. With a unique and meticulous technique, the biologist Alexander Lauterwasser presents a concert-show where the figures engendered by music evoke natural forms like snowflakes or flowers. Visual masterpieces whose architects are above all the musicians, and where the relationships between vibrations and shapes are revealed and bring us to the foundation of our creation.> complete show’s description

  • Once Upon a Time, there was the Violin

    Casino de Montbenon

    Who hasn’t at one time associated the violin with the popular image of André Rieu, the incarnation of a post-modern Johann Strauss? Vivaldi, the red-haired priest who pioneered the solo concerto, Paganini, the virtuoso demon who finished his concerts with one remaining string; so many stories, factual or invented, have built up the legends around this perfectly proportioned instrument! The violin has talked and been talked about for more than three centuries already. But what do we really know about it? In his daily radio broadcast on France Inter called Carrefour de Lodéon, the exceptional cellist and famous radio announcer Frédéric Lodéon has been presenting classical music for almost twenty years, making it accessible to the public at a prime hour. Isabelle Meyer and Michael Zuber, for their part, come from a long violin-playing tradition, handed down from the great masters and incorporating the most historically important schools. With musical extracts, compositions by the greatest violinists in history, meticulous musicological research and anecdotal stories, Once Upon a Time, There Was the Violin invites you to rediscover this mythical instrument through 350 years of virtuoso violin playing. The story began on the day the hairs of a horse met the gut of a cat...> complete show’s description

    Some count the stars; Hubert Reeves recounts the story of the stars… Acclaimed astrophysicist and author of numerous specialised publications, Reeves devotes one third of his time to popularizing science for the general public. “I believe, he says, that communicating scientific understanding is at least as important as increasing knowledge: it is unhealthy and sometimes dangerous to cultivate ivory tower secrets where science is concerned.” He greatly appreciates literature and music, similar to the free spirits of former times who elegantly mixed science and art. Wondrous books such as Atoms of Silence, Stardust, Malicorne, The Hour of Our Delight, films like The Stars Also Are Born, Life in the Universe, and numerous television broadcasts have made him well known to the public along with his eternal question: Does the universe have meaning? All of this generosity is a form of religion, an investment in intelligence. His gravelly voice with its hearty Quebec accent can start stones rolling in streams, and he lends this delivery to the service of the music he loves: Mozart, among others. In Mozart & the Stars, Hubert Reeves narrates the parallels between musical and cosmic creation, intimately mixing chamber music with tales of the genesis of stars. Passionate about music in all spheres, he invites us, as he does in his books, to find sense of the universe and the human adventure. The complementary nature of scientific, aesthetic and ethical research…Let him speak of Mozart: “I cannot think without emotion of the moment when Mozart, having just finished composing Don Giovanni, puts down his quill and assembles the pages. It is a special moment in the story of humanity and by extension in all of reality. All creators, musicians, painters and poets, have added beauty to the world. They have enriched our lives by giving us access to moments of ineffable happiness. And by extension, I believe that every human being, in his own sphere of activity, whether large or small, can be an eighth-day creator.”> complete show’s description

  • The Carnival of the Animals

    Casino de Montbenon

    Tonight, the world of animals lifts the veil on the world of music. Onstage this evening is the Carnival of the Animals! Since childhood, Karim has been fascinated by music: his dream is to become an orchestra conductor. With the help of Isabelle the violinist, he discovers a world he thought he could never reach. Isabelle lifts a veil with the tip of her bow to uncover a musical book, the story of Ferdinand the Bull. Marvellous! The music is telling a story! Then our fairy begins to sing The Ox on the Roof, a Brazilian tune that comes straight from the Rio Carnival. Another veil is lifted and a pianist appears. Fantastic! The music makes everyone want to dance! Karim is ecstatic. But that’s not all. He wants to be a conductor, and he will be a conductor! Musicians materialize from all sides. With their instruments, they imitate donkeys, kangaroos and elephants, becoming the accomplices and guinea pigs of our apprentice conductor. And so the evening becomes the Carnival of the Animals. No, Karim, tortoises can’t dance the French Cancan! No, Karim, it isn’t twenty thousand notes under the sea! Learn the music before you become a fossil! The path is long, sprinkled with pieces labelled Presto Furioso and Allegro Ridicolo... Will our friend attain his dream? Will his musical companions be discerning enough to encourage him on his quest and lift the veil on the mysteries of music? From age 7> complete show’s description

  • Vivaldi underpins a Vintage Fashion Show

    Alcazar Montreux

    An all-female cast combines talent with beauty for a vintage fashion parade conceived by stage director Gérard Demierre. The famous Four Seasons by Vivaldi, performed live by the excellent Caecilia’s Ensemble with guest soloists Isabelle Meyer and Michael Zuber, will underpin a review of fashion developments over the last forty years. Vintage fashion, or the reinterpretation of emblematic models from past periods, can be dated like wine to specific years, hence the expression (e.g. a Chanel bag from the 70s, a Burberry coat from the 80s...). First worn by film stars at red-carpet premieres, Hitchcockian heroines alongside 60s pop idols, the vintage look has now hit the streets and the glossy magazines. With Vivaldi adding the tannin to authentic period clothing, there is no doubt that the past is back in style!> complete show’s description

  • Serenade in Images

    Casino de Montbenon

    The Serenade–music wafting to the ears of the beloved on a beautiful night! Serge Minkoff, a filmmaker with a passion for music, and Gábor Takács, a fervidly imaginative conductor, present a production wherein the senses cross and mingle. Opening one’s heart to music means letting one’s emotions come forth. Closing one’s eyes while listening to a musical piece is to wander within a landscape of the mind. Looking at what the heart can hear... Serge Minkoff rose with enthusiasm to the challenge of creating and presenting a succession of filmed sequences that evoke the musical richness of the Serenade by Dvořák through images. Composed of five movements, each preceded by a film introducing the emotional climate of the music to follow, the Serenade illustrates an equal number of moods. The Serenade slowly reveals itself over the unfolding melodies and sequences, alternately lyrical, melancholy or jubilatory…> complete show’s description
