Boccace - Machaut - Haendel

7 à 8 persons on tour

Le Décaméron de Boccace comme la Messe de Notre Dame de Machaut sont deux œuvres écrites au milieu du XIVe siècle pendant que la pandémie de peste ravageait l’Europe. Dans le Décaméron, dix jeunes gens sur dix jours deviennent muses et conteurs ; et chaque soir, le temps des histoires se conclut par une chanson.


Ce spectacle entrelace les visions amoureuses et les interrogations existentielles des personnages du Décaméron, et l’expérience du sacrée par la musique de Guillaume de Machaut. Les récitatifs de l'opéra Acis et Galatée de Haendel ajoutent une dimension supplémentaire à cette exploration des différentes facettes de l'amour.


Ce programme a été réalisé en coproduction avec Clermont Auvergne Opéra, le Festival Voix et Route romane, et le Festival de La Chaise-Dieu.

6 à 7 persons on tour - Trilogie Enfer, Purgatoire, Paradis

2 persons on tour - Dante Everyman (One man show)

5 persons on tour - Dante Troubadour (Great Medieval Karaoke)

Singing the Commedia is organized around a constellation of five performances: The Circles of Hell, The Mountain of Purgatory, The Spheres of Paradise, Dante Everyman and Dante Troubadour. Each show is autonomous and each performance offers a poetic and musical entry into the work of Dante Alighieri. These shows were co-produced with the following theaters and festivals : Sémaphore of Cébazat, Imago Clermont-Auvergne-Métropole, the Chemins de Musique festival of Ligugé, the International Center for Medieval Music of Montpellier, the Jean de la Fontaine festival of Château-Thierry, and in distribution partnership with the Aurillac theater and the Vochora festival in Tournon-sur-Rhône.


The Divine Comedy (Commedia in Italian) is made up of 14,233 verses grouped into 100 poems. From 1304 to 1319, Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) wrote in a process of introspection, an initiatory journey in search of the fulfillment of being in the theater of life. We use the “Dantesque material” as a score that lacks musical notation. Taking up the hypotheses of several researchers, Bruno Bonhoure sings extracts from the Commedia in Italian.


The performance still on tout is Dante Troubadour (Great Medieval Karaoke) which focuses on the image of Dante as a friend of the troubadours. Dante's journey from the center of the earth to space is a journey from darkness to light. It is a metaphor for telling a journey towards knowledge and philosophy. Throughout his journey, the author evokes hymns and psalms as well as the poetry of the troubadours of his time including: Bernard de Ventador (1120-1200), Bertrand de Born (1140-1215), Giraut de Bornelh (1138 -1215), Sordello (1210-1269), Arnaud Daniel (1150-1210), Foulque de Marseille (1155-1231), Peirol d'Auvergne (1160-1225) and Martin Codax (13th century).​​


Dante Troubadour (Great Medieval Karaoke) is an interactive performance which allows part of the public to sing from the room and a group of beneficiaries prepared in advance to share the stage alongside professional musicians. Dante Troubadour (Great Medieval Karaoke) is a participatory show which allows you to integrate a class with at least eight songs or four classes with at least two songs each.​

This concert is inspired by the story of Franciscan monk Guillaume of Rubrouck who traveled to Karakorum, the ancient capital of the Mongol empire, some twenty years prior to Marco Polo's famed journey. Inside the great Mangu Khan's court, the monk organizes a theological controversy on the eve of year 1254's Pentecost. His story survived thanks to a manuscript letter addressed to the King Louis IX.

Program created in copoduction with la Fondation Royaumont, the city of Gonesse, le Festival de la Chaise-Dieu and with the support of the city of St Leu d’Esserent.  In 2024, a participatory performance will be created with the partnership of Clermont-Auvergne-Opéra.

A pilgrimage from the inside

Through this show, La Camera delle Lacrime is taking us us to a true pilgrimage, by taking a fresh look at the score. From now on, I know what I was missing while listening to the disc : presence and show. The happiness from the unpredictable, the moment of inspiration, silence that accentuates the music , the joy of singing and playing. Magic of a heartrending show injects Marian music with martial gesture. - Marc Dumont – France Musique

With all the musicians who accompany us, and for every single one of our performances, our goal is to create moments when the artistic act finds its premier expression of transcendency and emancipation. Through this project over800 choir singers have been invited to embody the voices and acts of pilgrims going to Montserrat and sharing memorable musical moments on stage with artists from the ensemble. Program created in coproduction with the Festival de la Chaise-Dieu and la Fondation Royaumont, In 2024, in partnership with the International Center for Medieval Music in Montpellier, we are working on the creation of a Gypsy Vermeil which brings together medieval music and gypsy music.
