Concert Spirituel

The Fondation Etrillard has joined forces with the Concert Spirituel to reach a wider audience for the opera Echo et Narcissus by the composer Gluck. It will be performed at the Opéra Royal de Versailles in autumn 2022.

Created in Paris in 1779, Echo and Narcissus, inspired by the Metamorphoses of Ovid, is Gluck’s final work. Disappointed by the public's lack of enthusiasm for his work, Gluck returned to Vienna and stopped composing. As a result, Echo and Narcissus is largely unknown to the public, which is one of the reasons the Fondation Etrillard was keen to support the production of this opera. The Foundation collection features two tapestries on the theme, which will be exhibited during the concert to promote dialogue between music and tapestry.
