About the programme

Love, hatred, revenge: these violent emotions flare up in Saint-Saëns’s opera Déjanire. Here the composer, in 1910, used incidental music from an outdoor spectacle to fashion a tragédie lyrique on a mythological plot garnished with grand choruses and exotic effects. Hercule has fallen in love with the captive Iole, and his wife Déjanire seeks to win him back. She recognises the fatal connexions too late, and her stratagem takes a deadly turn.

Véronique Gens

About the performers

Trained in baroque music and Mozart roles, the soprano Véronique Gens has long won acclaim in the French romantic repertoire. Her striking timbre and urgent delivery have already breathed new life into Saint-Saëns’s Proserpine with the Munich Radio Orchestra. At her side as Hercule in her reading of Déjanire will be Michele Angelini, an American tenor frequently heard in Europe.
