Opéra de Lyon | THE STIGMATISED – Interview with A Perez

Alejo Perez is clearly under the spell of Schreker’s sensuous music for THE STIGMATISED. In this interview, he reveals some of its secrets.

 

For Perez, THE STIGMATISED is, above all, a score full of colour and contrast. The violence and eroticism of the plot indeed inspires some of Schreker’s most lyrical and transparent music, which is sometimes compared to the work of Debussy. For Perez this music certainly evokes the work of the Impressionists. And all this in service of high drama that, says Perez with a smile, he is not always able to follow, such is his concentration on Schreker’s soaring score.
