National Opera of Lorraine chose to present a diptych, “L’Heure Espagnole” by Maurice Ravel and “Gianni Schicchi” by Giacomo Puccini. Thanks to the scenography and the directing, these two contrasted pieces become complementary and linear. L’Heure Espagnole” is a succulent and ironic farce happening in Tolède, Spain. On the other hand “Gianni Schicchi” represents a piece full of cupidity and love, emphasised on a dynamic and realistic direction about family inheritance.
