Metropolitan Opera: The Auteur of Opera

By Elena Park, playbillarts,14 Nov 2008

With his new production of La Damnation de Faust - running at the Met through Dec. 4 - Robert Lepage creates a cinematic vision of Berlioz’s groundbreaking work. But, he tells the Met’s Elena Park, the state-of-the-art technology is at the service of the singers.

Robert Lepage’s new production of La Damnation de Faust is an inventive marriage of traditional stagecraft and visionary technology. The creative wizard behind visually stunning shows for artists and companies ranging from Peter Gabriel to Cirque du Soleil to Seiji Ozawa, Lepage is at heart a master storyteller with the gift of being able to develop and harness technology to serve his intimate, human stories. In his hands, state-of-the-art video techniques are used to intensify the essence of a story, its emotional impact, and the work’s theatricality. Lepage brings his visionary style to the Met for Berlioz’s “dramatic legend” (last heard here in 1907), which will be conducted by Music Director James Levine.
