The dream of Ophelia or the bride with the pipe. Frany Couvrat Frany Couvrat
The scene takes place on the banks of the Canal du Midi, near Béziers (Languedoc), on a beautiful summer day, inspired by the famous painting by John Everett Millais (1852) entitled Ophelia where the dead woman is drowned. Ophelia is a heroine of Shakespeare in Hamlet «she let herself sink along the river singing songs and finally got drowned». I wanted to bring Ophelia back to life and fulfill the dream of every young girl of that time by representing her as a bride. A fauna plays the pipe and she sings, happy, while taking a walk along the bank
