Art Meets Music: An Exploration of the Deep Synergy Between Visual Artists and Composers – Chagall at the Opera: A Listener’s Guide
“I wanted to represent, as in a mirror, a bunch of dreams, the creations of the actors and musicians; to keep in mind the colourful clothes of the audience stirring on the lower level. To sing like a bird, free of any theory and method. To render homage to the great composers of operas and ballets.”
From the Paris Opéra Garnier to New York’s Metropolitan Opera, Chagall created utterly unique murals, sets and costumes for opera houses and theaters worldwide. We’ll listen to the many composers he glorified and discuss how they inspired him.
