The original libretto was written in German, and the opera has been performed also in Swedish, English, French, Italian and Hungarian.

Le Grand Macabre is Ligeti's only opera, it's the longest piece he ever wrote, and it's one of the few postwar operas to have earned a firm place in the repertoires of opera companies, with more than 30 productions since its premiere. The opera's wild, scatological humour, its grotesque fantasy, biting satire, and above all, the directness and invention of its music make it one of the most riotous experiences you can have in an opera house. But the significance of Le Grand Macabre isn't just that it's the most successful piece of music theatre by any avant-garde c. György Ligeti had a good sense of humour. The best proof of that is his ludicrous opera Le Grand Macabre , which Sir Simon Rattle performed in 2017 with an illustrious ensemble of singers. The work is a grotesque parable about war, enriched with elements from the theatre of the absurd, the mediaeval dance of death and a wild carnival. As for earlier operatic projects of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Peter Sellars was enlisted as the director.
