Faenza wishes you a very Happy New Year 2028!



Every year, just when it’s time to optimistically express to you my wishes of happiness, health and prosperity, I feel ambivalent.

In reality, although I try to force myself, although I try to have a better attitude, I am not an optimist.

Hang on, this is going to be a little long…

A stationary voyage

I like this oxymoron. I had seen it in an article on cabinets of curiosities, at a time when we were working on an eponymous show. It came up again in communications about our program, the Jeu des amants (The Game of Lovers), an interactive evening where we have teams of players travel, following an imaginary map of the Kingdom of Love.

Polichinelle and Orpheus in Hell

After having triumphed in Avignon, Polichinelle sets off for the Ambronay Festival to give a performance for all ages on Sunday, September 25th at 3 PM, and then two school performances on Monday, September 26th. The next occasions to see Polichinelle, Orpheus and Eurydice will only be possible next February and April, so it’s up to you!

Polichinelle vs. Orfeo in the Ring at Avignon

My Lord Spectator,

Since the new President of the Republic, the former President of the Republic, the new Prime Minister, the former Prime Minister, the Opposition, the Majority, the Right, the Left, the Extreme Right, the Extreme Left, the System, the Anti-System, all the new, the former and future Mighty of the Universe put it into their heads to bark speeches at you on so many different subjects, don't think badly of me, Polichinelle, the new Self-Proclaimed Artistic Director of the ensemble Faenza, if I come piss on the wall of your attention and inundate it with a flood of words!

Faenza on Radio France

If you missed the excellent emission on Sunday of Karine Le Bail, "Un air d'histoire," with Anne-Madeleine Goulet and the Faenza ensemble, you can listen to the podcast here. You will hear about the fascinating Princess des Ursins and you will discover some rare works by the Roman composer, Ercole Bernabei, which we certainly count on recording for agOgique one of these days. Happy listening!
