Who is Olivier Py?
Since the early 2000s, Py has increasingly devoted himself to the opera. His productions of La Damnation de Faust, Tannhäuser and Tristan und Isolde, all in Geneva, have generally been well received. In March 2008, he debuted at the Paris Opéra. On this occasion he stated to a French magazine that he "would not be done staging operas until [he] did Wagner's Ring and Parsifal".
