Barbe Bleue – Opéra National de Lyon
June - July 2019
When Bluebeard loses his fifth wife, the turbulent Boulotte is drawn to be the next. But Bluebeard falls in love with Hermia - who loves the sapphire shepherd - and gets tired quickly of Boulotte. He asks his alchemist to concoct an "anti-wife" philter. But like the other times, it is only a sleeping pill and Boulotte awakens the five "deceased wives". They reappear disguised as gypsies and break the truth.
