Les enfants terribles (Children of the night)

by Philip Glass
A Dance opera for children aged 14 and older

Text by Susan Marschall and Philip Glass based on motives taken from Jean Cocteau’s novel with the same title
Due to self-isolation and exclusion, the teen siblings Paul and Lisa are caught in their own world which they themselves describe as „the room“. As they are solely focused on each other, any influence from outside can dangerously unsettle the already difficult balance. Which is about to tip over, when Paul’s lover Agathe and Gérard are pulled into the maze of the mysterious game the two are playing. Lisa starts to weave a fatal net of love and deception. With her retreat into the firm belief that the imaginary world she and her brother have created is indestructible, Lisa is manipulating three different people. And what started as a game ends in death and destruction…
