The Swedish premiere of Ambroise Thomas’ opera. Director Stephen Langridge - artistic director – focuses on political manipulation and family relations that are so complex they could drive anyone to madness. In a modern setting where you are watched everywhere it’s hard to differ between reality, illusion and paranoid delusions.
