Scénographies d’Edward Hopper

Graciane Finzi
World premiere:
2013

Combining projections of Edward Hopper’s paintings with settings of Claude Esteban’s poetic writings on the canvases, Graciane Finzi’s mélologue offers wonderful glimpses into a bygone world as seen through the eyes of America’s most famous realist painter.

A pageant of music, poetry and image… A very refined result.
