From 21 November to 7 December 2019, the Palais Garnier will be presenting Lear, a two-part opera by Aribert Reimann, created in 1978 and inspired by Shakespeare's work. This adaptation for opera of the Shakespearean tragedy King Lear is a veritable feat that succeeds in restoring the tortuous dissimulations and violence of human relationships. Lear has been performed in more than thirty international productions and is one of the most popular German operas of the second half of the 20th century.
