Before the Brussels premiere, the director will meet the audience at the famous Hotel Le Berger, a former hôtel de rendez-vous, fittigly for the opera’s subject matter.
As the La Monnaie wrote, the event is a chance to ‘[p]lunge into the artistic universe of Mariusz Treliński, at the heart of which lies his fascination for the great female figures who are ever-present in his work, be it opera or cinema. By delving into the intrigue of Powder Her Face, itself inspired by a sexual scandal in the 1960’s and the female incarnation of Don Juan, this evening will allow the audience to discover what inspires the Polish director, amongst other things.’
The event will gather: Mariusz Treliński, Béatrice Delavaux (leading journalist for Le Soir), Agnieszka Graff (feminist, human rights activist, scholar), Béa Ercollini (editor-in-chief of the Belgium edition of Elle), Laurent de Sutter (philosppher, writer, professor at the VUB), and Isabelle Tilmant (psychologist and psychoterapist).*
