Length: 3H30 with intermission
With ferocious humour, Jean-François Sivadier invites us to follow the rehearsals of La Traviata, one of Verdi's most popular operas, revisiting a show that he created 12 years ago.
And there is more : Jean François Sivadier gives to the spectator the experience of the work in progress, by allowing him to be at a very special place, that of the "witness-actor". First a singer, then a musician, the spectator is at the center of the creative process. Discovering from behind the scenes : the wander, the lack of time, doubts, conflicts and pleasure.
Both a declaration of love and war to the world of opera, Italienne scène et Orchestre displays the making of a common dream. It displays a world where everything moves and dances altogether : divas, singers, technicians, directors, conductor and the eternal conflict between text and music, stage and pit, theater and opera.

« Jean-François Sivadier sketches a ferocious but tender painting, unravelling along the mad rhythm of the semiquavers of his witty humour. » Gwénola David, La Terrasse
