A soprano opera singer examined under a microscope or through the opera glasses of a university teacher of anatomophysiology, what is it? Who is Leon Burp and how does Perec praise this character and Gotlib’s world?
The composer embodies a scientist off his rocker, the diva knits her singing exercises, the conductor, balancing on a board does the best he can. Nobody knows whether it is this distinguished scientist or this amazing soprano on wheels who has the situation under control…Newton perhaps?
« (…) An unconventional opera, inspired by literature as well as experimental science. »
