À propos de l'évènement

We want to say “la Pancrazi”, as we say “la Malibran” or “la Périchole”. Actress, tragedian, the mezzo-soprano is equally at home in brilliantly colored brilliance as in comical effrontery, French-style lyrical tragedy as well as Italian-style bel canto. She chose, with the very young Julien Beautemps on accordion, to tell us Les Nuits d'une demoiselle .

Outraged woman, broken woman, martyred woman or on the contrary liberated woman, there is no shortage of them in the repertoire. From Händel, Bizet, Offenbach, to Colette Renard, the final Grand Prix de la chanson française in Deauville in 1956, whose mischievous nights are unforgettable. The composers and some censors did not skimp on the means to make these young ladies lose their lives, their reason or their freedom, the Pancrazi stood up to them by giving voice in the middle of a Franciscan cloister which had formerly become the one of the most inspiring cultural places in Normandy.
