théâtre national de nice

le chant du cygne

[fantasia] ANTON TCHEKHOV | TRANSLATED BY ANDRÉ MARKOWICZ, FRANÇOISE MORVAN | ORIGINAL CREATION ROBERT BOUVIER

Thinking that he is alone in an empty theatre, an old actor is overcome by his unfulfilled ambitions, childhood terrors and desire to halt the passage of time. The legendary Swiss actor Roger Jendly is so magnificent in this role that we are left confused as to what is theatre and what is real. Facing him, Adrien Gygax plays his youthful counterpart.
The pair dazzles us with this theatre-within-a-theatre setting in a performance that is both light-hearted and profound. A torrential piece that presents Mankind in all its fragility and greatness, filled with laughter and emotion. Don’t miss it!

This great work of theatrical art is above all a love ballad to the Stage, the place where everything is reborn.

« The Mask and The Feather snatch a special place in our hearts. »
France Inter

« The show is a display of exhilarating, masterly skills. »
L’Humanité

« Adrien Gygax’s mettle works wonders in the face of Roger Jendly’s daunting experience. »
