In Les Bacchantes (The Bacchae) vocalist Médéric Collignon embodies several characters from Euripides tragedy. The exploration of vocal and instrumental techniques contribute to the dramatisation. These metamorphoses and variations on Dionysos by the voice and electronics are preceded by two creations for cymbals and harp, with a glance at Ancient Greece.
