Tristan & Isolde
"Salue pour moi le monde !" say Isolde before she leaves Brangäne while waiting for Tristan to make him drink the philtre of the expiation which will become a love potion, simple alibi. Joëlle Bouvier again explores the great myth about the music of Richard Wagner. She wants to share "moments of ecstasy in which hatred rubs with the flames of an extreme passion". The sufferings and antagonisms seem to find their resolution in the night, in death. Passion reigns supreme, and music, "the air that never dies," unites the two lovers. Joëlle Bouvier chose to transform some elements of history in order to make them more abstract, so that the story's not too narrative or realistic. She expresses herself through a more ontarian and metaphorical writing, from which the great themes of the work, love, broken love, treason, resentment and forgiveness, have remained.
