He also worked for La Comédie Française and directed operas at the Théâtre du Châtelet and Opéra Bastille. His late works include 4.48 Psychose with Isabelle Huppert by Sarah Kane (2002), Variations sur la mort (2003) by Jon Fosse, and Comme un chant de David, from the Psaumes translated by Henri Meschonnic, with Valérie Dréville (2006).
