350 years after the birth of Jean Daniel Abraham Davel in Morrens

The Opéra de Lausanne has asked two artists from Vaud to take this charismatic figure and make him resonate in words and notes for the ears of current generations. After three years of work, they are ready to reveal the doubts and certainties of his fight, in contact with key people from his tragedy: Ludwig von Wattenwyl from Bern, military commander in the Pays de Vaud and in charge of leading the enquiry against him; the friend and traitor Jean-Daniel de Crousaz, who denounced him to the Bernese authorities; and this Beautiful Stranger, a fugitive and luminous incarnation of his mystic visions which are at the heart of the revelation of his destiny. An artistic and historical journey that spectators will be invited to extend by reading a work dedicated to the evolution of creation and a retrospective of the literary, dramatic and musical use of Davel’s character throughout the centuries.¨
