Original music

Monocle

Viktor Ilieff has been an active composer since the beginning of the new millennium. While being the music director of the Euroculture festival in France, he wrote his first opera “Ulysses”, which led to further commissions around Europe. Besides writing large orchestral pieces, in 2010 he started a collaboration with the young writer/director Stéphane Ghislain Roussel and wrote the music for his play “Monocle-portrait of Sylvia von Harden”, which over the next two years gathered a momentum and was performed all over Europe in cities such as: Luxemburg (Théâtre National du Luxembourg), Paris (upcoming show at Musee d’Orsay), Brussels, Bordeaux, Berlin (Volksbühne, Grüner Salon) the new Georges Pompidou Museum in Metz and the Festival of German Theater in Prague.

Parsifal Incerto (Parsifal in doubt)

All those performances led to wider attention and, in 2012, Viktor Ilieff and Stéphane G. Roussel in collaboration with Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg are writing an original opera “Parsifal Incerto”, which is to be premiered in 2014 with the Luxemburg National Chamber Orchestra under the direction of the composer.
