Miserere Music theatre


Inspired by Jan Dismas Zelenka’s Miserere (ZWV57)

This project offers a dramatic interpretation of Psalm 50, Miserere. While humanity appears irreparably marked by war, Miserere questions the misery of the human condition through the eyes and voice of a “mater dolorosa”, a woman who can be found in all eras, accompanied by a chorus of dancers personifying obsessive and ever-changing energies. The show challenges the power of theatre, music, poetry and dance as a means of expression when confronted with horror.

Premiere planned in 2025.

An initial exploration of the project has been presented at the Théâtre de la Vie (Festival des mots, des notes) in June 2023.
