Frédégonde musical to hit HCMC stage

Thanh Uyen

The musical play Frédégonde will be performed on October 20 and 21 at the Opera House, 7 Lam Son Square, District 1, HCMC.

The HCMC Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO) will stage this play in collaboration with La Fabrique Opera (France).

Frédégonde was written by Camille Saint – Saens. The character of Frédégonde, Frankish Queen, is originally a serving-woman, who inspired the Frankish king (Chilperic I) with a violent passion. At her instigation, he repudiated his first wife Audovera and strangled his second, Galswintha, Queen Brunhilda’s sister. A few days after this murder, Chilperic married Frédégonde.

She is depicted as ruthlessly murderous and sadistically cruel. She is known for the many cruel stories about her. This historical backdrop will serve the audience with an emotional thriller of varying degrees.

The opera will be performed by 11 opera artists and orchestras from La Fabrique, stage managed by Dan Arama, directed by Caroline Blanpied and music by HBSO, conducted by Patrick Souillot.

Spectators can visit or go to HBSO Box Office at HCMC Opera House to book tickets.
