Saturday 18. May. 2019, 7.30 pm | Elbphilharmonie, Kleiner Saal World Premiere
Thérèse lives in an arranged marriage with her cousin Camille, suffering unspeakably. She falls in love with Laurent, her husband’s best friend. Now she experiences a passion and happiness she would never have considered possible previously. The absolute wish to live together eclipses all else, and they decide to murder the husband. Now the way seems clear, but this open path is the very thing irreparably damaging their bond. Both are incapable of stopping the logic of their love’s death. Assigning blame only demonstrates their powerlessness in the face of the pointless fatalism of their development. The only communality they are still able to achieve is a suicide pact.
