“This bilingual show imposes itself with such fantasy, such creativity, and such freedom of reference—to Freddie Mercury, Lady Gaga, Bocelli, Céline, etc.— that it is not recountable. There is nothing less unruly, and it is an absolute must-see.”
— Francine Grimaldi, Samedi et rien d'autre

At the crossroads of theatre and opera, Le Vin herbé offers an iconoclastic, unbound, physical and innovative vision of the Tristan and Isolde myth: dance, martial arts, rap battles and haute couture meet art music. This outstanding show, for which BOP won the Découverte de l’année Opus Prize, brought together some sixty artists (actors, signers, instrumentalists) at the Arsenal art contemporain.
