Théâtre des Champs-Elysées
Composed for the Opéra-Comique to a libretto by Barbier and Carré, Psyché describes the thwarted love between Éros and Psyché, who are manipulated by the cynical Mercure. Stylistically, the work reveals a strong Italian influence in the mellifluous vocalise passages performed by both the heroine – Jodie Devos - and the travesti role of Éros - Karine Deshayes with a very wide vocal range. The subject set during the legendary period of Ancient Greece, bears witness to the Second Empire’s renewed interest in mythological themes—the most dazzling example of which was Les Troyens… as well as Offenbach’s La Belle Hélène.
