Bernard Foccroulle

The musical universe of Cassandra

The legacy of Monteverdi for Cassandra’s mythological time, a marimba for Sandra’s present-day world, a saxophone to symbolise her lover, tremolos in the strings to convey the threat to nature, the voice of the spirits... Composer Bernard Foccroulle introduces you to the musical universe of his first opera.
