Мне было восемь лет, когда он явился в первый раз : в солнечном луче, в белоснежной одежде, ангел, весь огненный, весь озарëнный. […]
И назвал он себя Мадиэль, Мадиэль, Мадиэль.
I was only eight years old when he appeared to me for the first time, Like a beautiful ray of sunshine, dressed in white, the Fiery Angel covered with light. [...]
And his name was sweet: Madiel! Madiel! Madiel!
The young Renata hears voices. Since childhood, she has been visited by a fiery angel exuding a sublime radiance. Besotted with him, she goes looking for him when he leaves her and meets Ruprecht, a knight who, out of love for her, will try to tear her away from this carnal possession. Moving from tavern to convent, against a backdrop of spiritualism and exorcism, collective hysteria and burlesque humour, The Fiery Angel is a powerful piece that has it all, bordering the very limits of expressionism. Inspired by the symbolist novel of the same name by Valery Bryusov, this opera is Prokofiev’s most striking operatic masterpiece. Its premiere at the Festival d’Aix will see it transported into the tumultuous world of director Mariusz Treliński, while Prokofiev’s score will resound to the baton of Kazushi Ono conducting the Orchestre de Paris.
