« La musique creuse le lit du texte » : Musique et langage dans Votre Faust d’Henri Pousseur et Michel Butor.

Marion Coste


Votre Faust is an opera composed by Michel Butor and Henri Pousseur. This article will show how language and music interact in this opera. Votre Faust redefines the relations between text and music since language is not only part of the dialogue between the actors: musicians and singers, too, have words to say. There is a continuum between music and language – with language being sometimes used because of its sonorities, beyond understanding, whereas music can pass a message.
