The French Garden
Melissa Gerber (Soprano) & Misha Meyer (Piano)
Works by Debussy, Fauré, Messiaen, Satie and more
Featuring Visuals by the Open Window Department of Film Arts
The French Garden is a project focused on the fusion of the French mélodie and visual art. The visual aspect of the project is overseen by Pluto Panoussis of the Department of Film Arts of the Open Window School of Visual Communication.
Through the combination of live performance and film, audiences are guaranteed a one of a kind audio-visual experience. The programme includes selections of French mélodies and solo piano works of composers Chabrier, Chausson, Debussy, Messiaen, Roussel and Satie as never experienced before. The journey begins in Eden, the first paradise, and continues through gardens filled with flowers and different birds and butterflies.
After the singing of the cicadas, as the day winds down, our journey ends in a universal garden. The programme is sure to delight all!
