Disc No: CYP4632 Yvonne, ugly and apathetic, is criticized all day, everyday by her aunt that a such hopeless creature will never find a husband. Extraordinarily and inexplicably, one candidate appears and is none other that the son of the King and Queen, Prince Philippe. The union creates great consternation in the royal household but fortunately a solution to the problem is found when the Royal Court assassinates her with a fish. Yvonne is the final chapter of a quartet of contemporary operas, the fruit of the long term collaboration between Belgian composer Philippe Boesmans and Swiss dramaturg and director Luc Bondy.
