Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda is one of Monteverdi's most famous works, based on Tasso’s Jerusalem Delivered. Both clad in armour, Tancredi and Clorinda face each other in combat. Tancredi kills his opponent, who turns out to be the woman he loves. Inspired by the character of Clorinda, Claude Ledoux has composed another musical epic, Tomoé, whose heroine is a Onna-musha, a legendary 12th century female samurai, a sublime and surreal fighter with a tragic destiny. In this production that combines dance, martial arts, music and cinema, while bridging past and present and the traditions of East and West, six instrumentalists and three solo singers accompany Noh actor Masato Matsuura and dancer Bruna Gondoni. The aesthetic choreography of the fighting and the projection of a film by Thierry Loreau are combined with poetry, song and the sound of the biwa.
