The main character in Kaija Saariaho's chamber opera La Passion de Simone is a modern day figure reflecting upon the ideals of philosopher and teacher Simone Weil (1909–1943). In this conversation between Aleksi Barrière, director of La Passion de Simone, and historian and Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, Christine Amadou, the audience can get to know Weil's life and work, touching on topics such as human responsibility and modern martyrdom. The conversation might enable a deeper and more nuanced interpretation of the performance itself. Free admission Supported by Fritt Ord, FINNO, The Norwegian-Finnish Cultural Foundation, Institut français de Norvège and The Sibelius Society of Norway Sponsored by Bergens Tidende
