Welcome to the Duchy of Cacatois XXII

When he premiered L’Île de Tulipatan on 30 September 1868 on “his” stage at the Bouffes-Parisiens, Jacques Offenbach was at the height of his fame and art. The years prior to the Franco-Prussian unrest were a veritable creative firework display for him galvanised by the success of The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein whose librettist Ludovic Halévy humorously summarised the perfect timing: “Bismarck is helping to double our income, this time it’s the war we’re laughing at, and the war is on our doorstep”. Offenbach went on to have one success after another, with Robinson Crusoe, Geneviève de Brabant, Le Château à Toto, and La Périchole in which the two central characters bear the flowery names of Octogène Romboïdal, grand seneschal, and Cacatois XXII, duke and supreme chief of the island. Afterwards, as is often the case with Offenbach, the (surface) laughter is not without a certain depth – in this case the question of sexual orientation on the threshold of adulthood is highlighted, embodied by the “tomboyish” character of Hermosa, the grand seneschal’s daughter, and by the delicate and graceful behaviour of Prince Alexis, the duke’s son.

Created in 2010 with the help of the public authorities, the Lyrical Road from the Opéra de Lausanne continues a unique policy in French-speaking Switzerland of the professional integration of singers and instrumentalists who have graduated from the region’s universities of music, accompanied by performance technicians at the end of their apprenticeship. This unique operation in Switzerland of lyrical decentralisation allows opera lovers to discover the work of a great institution such as the Opéra de Lausanne in a family setting and in a summer environment.
