L'Opéra du bout du monde

A Film by Marie-Clémence et César Paes

- Coproducer -

A historical road movie behind the scenes of the opera "Maraina" to discover the history of the first inhabitants of the islands of the Indian Ocean. At Fort-Dauphin, Camp Flacourt, where officers sent by Louis XIV met the Malagasy for the first time, Jean-Luc Trulès, composer from Reunion, will lead the orchestra in front of a crowd who had never seen an opera before. The stories intercross to tell this little-known story with several voices. A musical journey that sails between the XVIIth century and 2012, in a triangle that connects La Réunion, Madagascar and Paris, to understand better the Indian Ocean today.
