Devoted to the creation of new forms of musical and lyrical theatre, T&M has built on the heritage of the Atelier Théâtre et Music (Atem) founded by George Aperghis in 1976. Since 1998, over thirty shows (opera, musical theatre) have been produced and presented by T&M, in accordance with artistic choices which have fashioned a genuine repertoire. Commissing the creation of new pieces (Filidei, Rivas, Bianchi, Dillon, Donatoni, Dusapin, Goebbels, Lorenzo, Pesson, Sarhan…), promoting original repertoires by virtue of unconventional mises-en-scene (Sciarrino, Kurtág, Mitterer, Janácek, Stravinsky, Wagner…), and to implement an ongoing reflection on the practise of theatre and music and their pedagogical developments are the primary objectives of T&M. T&M-Paris is subzided by the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (DRAC Ile-de-France). Antoine Gindt is the director of T&M since 1997.
