JACQUES REBOTIER (b.1950): L'Indien des neiges.
Catalogue Number: 02J118
Description: This opera for young people is a curious, surreal comic opera, in a free musical style which is basically tonal, plus or minus a predominance of declamatory speech and scene-setting discords, which lend the piece more of a theater presentation than that of a purely musical work. The unusual ensemble consists of children's choir and an octet of 'celli, with a tenor soloist. Odd, but certainly entertaining. French libretto. Éric Trémolières (voice), L'Octuor de Violoncelles, Maîtrise de l'Opéra de Lyon; Christophe Bernollin.
