After Traviata / Vous méritez un avenir meilleur, Benjamin Lazar returns to the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris for a new creation on the borders of theater and music. He is inspired here by a masterpiece of the Renaissance, The Heptameron, left unfinished in his seventh day by Marguerite de Navarre, sister of François Premier and great woman of letters.
