LE ROI QUI N’AIMAIT PAS LA MUSIQUE

KAROL BEFFA, RENAUD CAPUÇON...

Saturday 27 april - 16h00

Théâtre du Jeu de Paume

The story of a King who didn't like music but who, nevertheless, reigns over a kingdom in which there are only musicians. In a fit of overweening authority, he decides to forbid music, thus condemning his kingdom to silence, anguish and melancholy.


A fun narrative of initiation for children, Mathieu Laine's story is beautifully told through the tuneful music of composer Karol Beffa, without a hint of sharpness.


The exceptional presence of Charles Berling, as Monsieur Loyal, the narrator, takes us to the heart of the intrigue at once. An outstanding quartet of musicians (Renaud Capuçon, Victor Julien-Laferrière, Andreas Ottensamer with the composer himself on piano), magically convey the musical atmosphere of this tale for children, that adults are sure to enjoy immensely.
