THE JOURNEES ROMANES 2013
From July 8
The Roman Days 2013 will take place in July from Monday 8th to Saturday13th
in Saint-Michel de Cuxa abbey.
The theme will be
“the Roman portal –11th-12th centuries. New approaches, new perspectives.”
The aim of the conference is to inform the general public about the
diverse themes of study of Roman portals giving an insight into recent
research, its methods and results.
The conference speakers, coming from a dozen universities in France,Catalunya and Italy,
will approach the portal as a pictorial emblem of EuropeanRoman art.
The first series of meetings will look at the principal aspects of the portal: its link with the liturgy and the inscribed or canonical texts, its
inscription on the facade and the evolution of the painted facade on entirelycarved portal and tympanum with varied images.
The further meetings and outingswill present to us, in an original way, the portals of Saint-Gilles-du Gard and
Arles-sur-Rhone, of Ripoll and Verona, the portals of the chapter houses in the
Midi and the playlets and mystery plays acted in front of these carved
backgrounds, without forgetting the new interpretations of the Roussillon
portals at Perpignan, Saint Genis, Saint Andre, le monastir del Camp, le
Boulou, or in the Conflent at Villefranche, Corneilla, Riquer.......
In short, six full, exciting days rediscovering this grand classic of
roman art, with, as usual, the medieval music of the Troubadours.

OPERA MOSSET 2013
From late July to early August
24, 26, 27, 31 july and 1, 2 august
Pasticcio ed antipasti
Verdi celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Verdi
In 2013 Opéra Mosset will celebrate the Verdi bicentennial with
a performance-cum-food based on Verdi's music.
Opéra Mosset's new show in 2013 will pay homage to Verdi in celebration of the bicentennial of his birth. In the form of a show-cum-food set in surroundings evocative of an Italian inn and complete with three courses of antipasti, the performance will conjure up Verdi's life and works.
Rather than a classical or chronological biography it will be designed as an impressionist portrait,
a trailer of Verdi's life and works.
Inside an inn symbolic of his youth and roots where he will meet is muse,
Verdi will get caught in a sort of time, space and consciousness distortion, and foresee fragments of his future like in a premonitory dream.
The musical excerpts, be they outrageously famous or lesser known,
will all be characteristic of the great composer's works.
Opéra Mosset will give six performances for up to 200 spectators nightly
from late July to early August.
