dieu et moi

DIEU ET MOI (2024) – Music by Annelies Van Parys – Libretto by Gaea Schoeters. This chamber Opera (70′), based on Jacqueline Harpman’s novella, is commissioned by  Kulturhuset Spira Jönköping (Sweden), Muziektheater Transparant and Operaballet Vlaanderen.

The libretto is based on a short novel of Jaqueline Harpman, one of Belgian’s forefront writers. It tells the story of an atheist woman who dies and is confronted with first the Angel of Death and than God himself and  continues discussing God’s non-existence. A smart, funny, but also philosophical novella that we will turn into a music theatre production (in French, but also available in Swedish).
