The operas of the Atelier Bildraum ensemble always start with an image. In Icon, this image is that of a “death mask”, perhaps the mythicised story of a woman who, in the mid-19th century, lost her life by drowning herself on the Seine, although her face retained a mysterious smile. This smile has intrigued painters, sculptors and writers ever since, and has now formed the working basis for the libretto by Sabryna Pierre, the music by Frederik Neyrick and the set designed by Atelier Bildraum, which are a reflection on contemporary visual culture.
