Charmed with the beauty of libretto and musical composition by Jean-François Chevillard, Theatre Dromesko decided to put on a short lyrical artpiece entitled "Margot". This musical spectacle, created between 2006 and 2007, can be considered a crazy opera in which the theme of waiting makes - waiting for someone else, waiting for tomorrow, filled both with anxiety, and with hope; waiting for death, for pleasure, or for the unknown - makes the construction axle. The spectator is carried over to the world of song, of the lyrical music; entwined with a simple, yet enchanting story.
It has been months since King Henry of Navarra and his army left to fight battles in distant lands. Queen Margot is waiting for him, lonely, with a knave and lady-in-waiting as her only company; her spirit wandering away and possessed with ominous thoughts called up by the scenes from the battlefield. Théâtre Dromesko invite the audience to a frantic evening, included beyond the set frames or conventions.
