A young girl suffering from sleepwalking finds her fiancé abandoning her when, following a nocturnal crisis, she finds herself in another man's bedroom. Rolando Villazón revisits this great belcanto classic with tenderness, and has a few surprises in store for us...

For his Sonnambula, Bellini was inspired by a very recent vaudeville (1819) by the French playwrights Eugène Scribe and Casimir Delavigne, which had just been adapted into a ballet at the Paris Opera. With his unique sense of melody, that poignant melancholy which characterises his art and which would inspire Chopin for his famous Nocturnes, the young Sicilian composer finds here the ideal language to paint this adventure full of tenderness and, at times, misunderstanding, between Amina and Alvino. As director, Rolando Villazón promises us a personal reading full of charm and poetry of this timeless belcanto masterpiece, where the dreamlike atmosphere allows the heroine to express her sensitivity. This new Sonnambula will also be co-produced with three of the most prestigious institutions on the international opera scene: the Metropolitan Opera of New York, the Semperoper of Dresden and the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées!
