Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Stravinsky's masterwork 'The Rake's Progress', created for La Fenice in Venice in 1951, is based on a libretto by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman, inspired by a series of 18th-Century prints by William Hogarth. In this amazing production from La Monnaie, De Munt 'jazzifies' the setting by replacing Hogarth's sin city, London, with 1950s Las Vegas, turning into a glittering, cinematic gallery of tabeaux vivants inspired by the early days of television. Staged by one of the most visionary theatre directors of our age, the Quebecois Robert Lepage, this neo-classical morality tale truly becomes a grand spectacle.
