A modern opera inspired by Victor Hugo's ''Claude Gueux'', on a libretto by Robert Badinter and music by Thierry Escaich. The synopsis of ''Claude'' is based on a true story. Claude is a silk worker who will be sentenced to 7 years of hard-Labor. From this, follows a chain of injustice and violence in witch Claude finish to kill the prison warden. He will himself be "guillotined" (decapitated). Claude is a plea against prison and for human dignity worn by magnificent performers: Jean-Sébastien Bou, in the title role, Jean-Philippe Lafont and Rodrigo Ferreira.
