    This show promises to be far from ordinary! Performed over three concerts, it couples music and text for an extraordinary experience featuring outstanding violinist, Philippe Graffin, and flamboyant actor, Gérard Depardieu. Together they combine the music of Saint-Saëns and Schönberg with the words of Baudelaire, Barbara, and Borges to show a clash of two temporal worlds, and the complicity between two forces of nature – between a determined virtuoso, and a disconcertingly brilliant actor.
