about

Le fleuve Léthé dans la mythologie grecque est le fleuve du dieu Hadès (Pluton) ; les âmes des morts s’abreuvaient dedans, ce qui leurs faisait oublier tout ce qu’ils avaient fait et souffert durant leur vie. Dans l’antiquité, certains Grecs croyaient qu’après avoir bu dans le fleuve, les âmes se réincarnaient car elles ne se souvenaient plus de leurs vies passées.

La pièce est une courte rhapsodie imaginée comme si nous étions enfin en mesure de revenir à la vérité par le pouvoir d’un tel fleuve.

*************************************************************************

River Lethe in Greek mythology is a river of Hades; the souls of the dead had to drink from it, which made them forget all they had done and suffered when they were alive. Some ancient Greeks believed that souls were made to drink from the river before being reincarnated, so they would not remember their past lives.

The piece is a short rhapsody imagined as if we are finally able to return to the truth by the power of such river.
