Jean-Christophe Maillot

While love is breaking into the lives of two young people, an artificial being will challenge what they believed they knew about it... Revisiting this classic of the Romantic repertoire, Jean-Christophe Maillot gives us, with an original musical score, a reflection on the search for the ideal partner in a technologically advanced society. Is it still the flesh and blood being with which we are familiar or a different being, making us question our allegiance to the human race?
