Today, the Teatro Cavallerizza in Reggio Emilia presents the world première of Trilogy in Two, an 'opera mosaic' with music and libretto by Andrea Liberovici.
Andrea Liberovici has already composed several works of music theatre, including Children of Uranium (Genova, 2005) and Macbeth Remix (Genova, 2016)
A dramaturgical investigation of three conflicting beauties : the ephemeral beauty of illusions, the profound beauty of solidarity, the ancient beauty of listening. Personalized respectively in three European archetypes: Faust as a fictional character, Florence Nightingale (founder of modern nursing) as an historic personality, and Venice as a listening architecture: the selfishness of the former, the attention to others of the latter (counterposed to the new racisms), the synthesis of the objective and indisputable beauty of the lagoon city, which in its architecture made of water and mosaics preserves the aptitude for listening and meeting. (reproduced from the Schallfeld Ensemble website)The cast consists of singer Helga Davis, with the Schallfeld Ensemble conducted by Sara Caneva. Andrea Liberovici directs.
