DVD - show staged and with Benjamin Lazar & La Rêveuse

 

traduc: " (...) Impertinent and poetic. (...) In a very Caravaggio twilight, the actor is punctuated by Florence Bolton at the viol and Benjamin Perrot at the theorba. Sainte-Colombe, Duffaut, Dubuisson, Ortiz, charm of the musics for the chamber and the alley, married to a diction so unique, confers on the sound experience an impressive power of fascination, objective the baroque rhétoric. It is a lesson of efficiency and good taste, there at times when, most of the time, the swagger and the puffiness reign over boards "
