Theatre - "La contrebasse"
From Thursday 23 to Saturday 25, at 8.30 pm, and Sunday 26 March 2023, at 4.30 pm Théâtre des Muses
Shortly before his novel "Le Parfum" became a worldwide hit, Patrick Süskind wrote this play with universal appeal. In it, a nameless musician, who plays double bass in an orchestra, awaits the next performance, alone with his instrument, his dreams, his bad faith, his artistic and romantic frustrations, amplified by his music. A darkly humorous masterpiece, "La Contrebasse" ("The Double Bass") is a striking portrait of a human in all his greatness and mediocrity, battling the social machinery represented by the hierarchy of the orchestra, bound to his instrument in a love-hate relationship.
