Topor’s vision of Ligeti’s Grand Macabre
November 9, 2010 § Leave a comment
While writing the previous post dmtls came across this, which immediately caught his eye. Further searching bore fruits. Roland Topor was the scenographer of the 1978 Bologna production [Italian premiere] of ‘Le Grand Macabre’ [Ligeti himself makes a reference to this fact in an interview from the same year]. Following photos from the performance leave much to be imagined and desired.
P.S. dmtls would be very interested to hear from anyone willing to share high quality photos or recordings of Le Grand Macabre performances
