la cuisine musicale camera


After the success of "Tout Neuf" comes a lyrical and playful production! 


Two kitchen aides have one mission: pepare a meal ordered at the restaurant. More than kitchen aides, they are musicians, obsessed with rythm, melodies, and above all: opera.

In their hands, the kitchen ustensils become musical instruments: the oven grill turns into into a harp, the pan into a bass... allowing for cooking and a merry, wordless, revisiting of the great melodies of Mozart, Puccini, Rossini or Bizet through rap, house or even world music!

OUEST FRANCE - "A delicious journey to a variety of rythms that color the great composers with an original hue. No need to be an expert to appreciate this recipe-show, the audience leaves wanting to whistle a melody"

OLYRIX - "A true culinary musical choreography offered by two artists full of energy and musical talent..."

NRJ - "An amazing show! And opera can also be for kids!" 


Making the operatic arts accessible

The Minute Papillon Company is a lyrical company whose specificity is creating original productions inspired by centuries of operas and the vitality of contemporary creation. 

Each project aims to open the imagination and subconsious through the poetic power of music and voice; and is conceived to be accessible by all: children or adults, connaisseurs or neophytes, as well as in various performance spaces: operas, schools, municipal theaters. 

VIOLAINE FOURNIER, Artistic director

Trained at the Conservatory, Violaine Fournier started the Minute Papillon Company in 2005 to produce shows that would transmit the classical repertory playfully, creatively and accessibly ("Tout Neuf", "Le Goût des Olives", "Grat'moi la Puce que j'ai dans l'Do") as well as new contemporary opera works (Peau d'Âne, "Assassines"). 


Outside her company, she has written numerous operas for children's choirs and participates in projects led by the Paris Opera, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, or Insula Orchestra.
