A hero of romanticism is coming to Lyon! The musicians of the Opera are paying homage to Louis Spohr, that precursor of fantastical opera.
This musical homage is a wonderful challenge : while he was once as famous as Beethoven, his contemporary, Spohr has now been forgotten by music-lovers. The inventor of romantic opera, with his Faust, and a defender of instruments which were little played at the time (the harp), he gave their credentials to new forms, such as his Nonette for strings and wind instruments.
