Le Villi - Opera Zuid

Tour across theatres in the Netherlands from 16 May to 19 June 2024.



Le Villi is an unforgettable dance opera full of passion, love and mysticism, and forms a world where past and present meet and where broken hearts are avenged.

With Le Villi, Puccini’s first opera, he lays a foundation for his later oeuvre in which human emotion is central. He based Le Villi on the age-old Central European myths of the ‘Vilja’: young women who died of a broken heart. Previously, this myth was used to create the world famous ballet Giselle. Dutch composer Karmit Fadael has composed a prelude especially for Opera Zuid’s production, inspired by the theme of the dark forest as a metaphor for getting lost in life.
