Sturm und Klang presents "The Girl at the Window" as part of the Stavelot Festival.

Abbaye de Stavelot - Salle François Prume Cour de l'Abbaye 1, 4970 Stavelot Belgium

This chamber opera, composed in 1901 by Eugène Samuel-Holeman (1863-1942) with a text by the writer Camille Lemmonnier, a major figure in Belgian literature. This piece is a surprising lyrical prose with its innovative instrumentation and harmonies. Between symbolism and modernism, Samuel-Holeman immerses us in the musical language of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
