director’s note On the longest day of the year… the night is the shortest. St. Johan’s night is perhaps the ultimate pagan celebration - the day in which the sun never sets - especially in Scandinavian countries where winter appears eternal, the nights without end. It is the night when the inevitable transgressions, paradoxically, are committed in the light of day. In Philippe Boesmans’ opera Julie, Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s eponymous play Miss Julie has been dissected by scalpel, leaving a lean, incisive drama, a spare skeleton for which Boesmans’ sumptuous score for chamber orchestra and three voices serves as both flesh and heart. Julie, the only child of her father the (ever-nameless) Count, dances by the fire in the company of her servants, trying to forget her recent break-up with her fiancé. The cook Christine, herself fiancéed to the Count’s groom, Jean, is preparing a meal for her lover, himself now the object of a full-on romantic assault by none other than Julie. After all, says Julie, he “dances better than anyone else”, and has a certain je-ne-sais-quoi which distinguishes him from the rabble. Everything takes place in the kitchen. The kidney stew slowly simmers. As Christine dozes off, Julie pushes Jean to drink, and as the alcohol takes effect, they begin to confide in one another, approaching the precipice of desire with less and less self-restraint, more and more abandon. And then they step over the edge. In the score, the act of love lasts 2’34’’, the time it takes for a passing storm to blow open the windows and create havoc. Love is short for such great upset, with such immeasurable consequences. Back in the kitchen - the forbidden act takes place elsewhere - Jean proposes that he and Julie run off together. They will go to Switzerland, buy a hotel, and Julie will run the till. The only snag: Julie has no money of her own, and in any case, the last thing she wants to do is sit at the cash register in some hotel in Switzerland. A new combat begins, but this time not an erotic one, a fight for survival, a savage, humiliating fight. “A servant is a servant” says Julie, only to hear Jean respond: “A whore is a whore”. Dismissed by Jean - a woman of no means is of no interest to him - Julie returns with a bag full of money stolen from her father’s safe, resigned to the idea of the escape to Switzerland. But the descent into hell has but begun, as Christine arrives and discovers the night’s events, issuing an order that, now that day has come, no-one dares transgress: Jean and Julie are not to leave the room until the Count returns. For Julie, there is but one solution remaining: the act will be done in the barn, with the help of Jean’s razor. Theatre is always present in Philippe Boesmans’ opera writing. Whether it be Reigen (based on La Ronde by Arthur Schnitzler), Wintermärchen (based on Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale) or his most recent successes with playwright Joël Pommerat, Boesmans is fundamentally a man of the theatre. Intuitively he knows how to expose the most subtle human material hidden within the drama, the duel between spoken and unspoken intentions serving as a veritable playground for this composer of the human soul. When words no longer suffice, when things appear beyond expression, his music emerges, the iridescent reflection of our innermost quiverings. Julie is written for chamber orchestra, an ensemble of 18 soloists who both accompany and provoke the drama. Boesmans navigates the uncertain waters of this domestic tragedy with true virtuosity: 75 uninterrupted minutes of a meticulously orchestrated three-person waltz, and its inevitable dead end. Without ever quoting its influences (the music evokes the colours of Alban Berg but also those of the Vienna of Richard Strauss). Above all, Boesmans creates a musical idiom like no other, one in which together, the voices and orchestra plunge the depths of a human tragedy that should never have happened. Julie is my third production with Philippe Boesmans. Philippe composed the music for 5 singers and a French horn for my production of Paul Claudel’s L’annonce faite à Marie in Paris a number of years ago (awarded Best Production and Best Music in Paris that year). He then enabled a chamber adaptation of perhaps his most famous opera, Reigen, for the opera studio I directed in Colmar, France, coproduced by the Théâtre de l’Athénée-Louis Jouvet in Paris and the Lausanne Opera. And our first production of Julie was performed in more than a dozen theatres across France, Belgium and Switzerland. Philippe’s music and his profound sense of theatre, have thus been a dotted line across much of my own career. It is with an ever-whetted appetite that I look forward to sharing this most recent feast with our audiences in Toronto. MATTHEW JOCELYN


music director’s note It has been a great pleasure diving into the music of Philippe Boesmans, a composer who is virtually unknown and underperformed in North America. His opera Julie (his fourth work in this genre) is a kind of conversation piece where the music provides a continuous narrative and is highly concentrated and sophisticated in its sound world. Short musical motives (for example the two note bass drum figure which is the first thing we hear) permeate the texture of the score and are repeated, developed and used contrapuntally throughout the piece. Christine’s opening vocalise becomes more agitated and extreme in its register as the work progresses mirroring the ever building dramatic tension. The vocal writing is incredibly economical without any artificial trappings or vocal effects for the sake of effects. The singers are treated like instrumentalists (akin to the music of the Baroque) and the rhythms are often declamatory and speech-like to add to the realism of the work. Boesmans’ orchestration is masterful and he creates a remarkable amount of contrast with only 18 instruments. This ranges from the almost inaudible haunting sound of strings playing harmonics to the thunderous virtuosic passage work which is spread throughout the brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings to create a feeling of restlessness and violence. The work embraces both tonal and non-tonal elements to create a musical language that is reminiscent of the first two decades of the 20th century (one can hear strands of Mahler, Stravinsky, Berg and Richard Strauss) where we often feel that we are in a brave new world where traditional melodies, harmonies and phrase structures no longer exist. In that sense, Boesmans perfectly translates Strindberg’s play into the realm of music theatre. LESLIE DALA

a note from soundstreams We are thrilled to collaborate with Canadian Stage on this extraordinary opera. Musically expressionist in the tradition of Alban Berg’s Lulu, Boesmans strips away the thin veneer of civilization with an astonishingly compact score that elicits the rawest of emotions through masterful vocal and instrumental writing. Soundstreams has a long and rich history of producing opera. Past productions range from R. Murray Schafer’s epic, large-scale opera The Children’s Crusade, co-produced with Luminato, to Brian Current/Anton Piatigorsky’s more intimate Airline Icarus, probing the hubris that inevitably springs from mankind’s greatest technological feats. While the search for compelling dramatic structure is a given in opera, Soundstreams also weaves a strong narrative into our concert programs. Our mainstage season, Ear Candy series, and monthly salons explore universal themes illuminated by particular composers’ works, probing the full gamut of human emotion in the same way that great theatre touches us all. But Julie is a compelling departure for Soundstreams in interesting ways: it’s our first opera without a chorus; it’s our first with so few solo roles—only three; and yet it’s the largest instrumental ensemble in any opera we have produced—18 musicians in total. That Boesmans so brilliantly exploits the full dramatic potential of these forces is all the more remarkable. We hope that this presentation opens the door long-term to the production of medium-scale Canadian and international operatic works on a level never before seen in this country.

creative COMPOSER PHILIPPE BOESMANS Born in Tongeren, Belgium, in 1936, composer Philippe Boesmans is respected as one of most influential musical figures in contemporary music. After being awarded the first prize in piano at the prestigious Conservatoire de Liège, he abandoned piano to pursue composition and developed a highly personal musical language profoundly influenced by the boundary-breaking Serialist music technique and the works of such master composers as Berio, Boulez, Pousseur and Stockhausen. It was only in the 1980s that he began to gain recognition in the opera world with such landmark operatic works La Passion de Gilles (1983), Wintermärchen (1999, A Winter’s Tale), and Reigen (1993, based on Arthur Schnitzler’s play La Ronde), hailed as “the greatest opera of the last 75 years” by Le Monde newspaper. Boesmans was a composer in residence at Théâtre de la Monnaie from 1986 to 2005, where he completed three operas, the last of which is Julie. A multiple award-winner with new opera commissions coming regularly from the Paris National Opera, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the Teatro Real de Madrid, his latest opera, Au Monde, was voted Best New Opera in the World by the British Opera Association.

Bondy was director of Berlin’s acclaimed Schaubühne Theatre from 1985 to 1987, Artistic Director of the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) from 2002 to 2013 and is the current Artistic Director of Paris’ Théâtre de l’Odéon.
