He Teatro Real will begin the new year with the replacement of the dazzling production The magic Flute, from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, conceived by Suzanne Andrade, Paul Barritt y Barrie Kosky, presented with great success in your scenario January of 2016.
This time will be offered 13 functions, between 19 January 24 February, again with the musical director of Teatro Real, Ivor Bolton, to the front of a double deal, of the Headlines Choir and Orchestra of the Teatro Real and Little Singers of JORCAM.
Creative and exciting staging of the Australian director Barrie Kosky, premiered at the Komische Oper Berlin 2012, returns to The magic Flute its character as a moral allegory for all audiences, but with multiple layers ─del children's story interpretive reflection filosófica─, ─del surrealist film aesthetic references to the comic─, and winks accomplices to the viewer.
Production lacks decorated and it ─con singers interact very little mobility and meticulous and precise work actoral─, with projections of an animated film full of rhythm, humor and imagination. In the spoken parts of the opera - actually a singspiel, which mixes text and spoken dialogues appear cantado─ projected gussets and accompanied by the pianoforte Ashok Gupta, who will perform fragments Fantasy in C minor Mozart.
The success of this scenic and dramaturgical proposal lies in its enormous facility to communicate with the public, your mood, the waste of creativity and complicity with the viewer through a visual universe in which the characters mozartianos two centuries ago come to the public concerning converted naturally into as close to us as a heartthrob Rudolph Valentino type (Tamino), a seductive pert as Louise Brooks (Pamina), an evil like the terrible Nosferatu (Monostatos), or laughing, torpe e ingenuo Buster Keaton (Papageno)…
The absence of a traditional decorated, a 'virtual scenery' reduced to the presence of a screen on stage, requires singers to act with a huge concentration, acting talent and synchronized movements, they should have the freshness of the gag and clockwork precision in coordination with the projection of the drawings.
A double cast will alternate performances in giving life to the main characters ─Andrea Mastroni Y Rafal Siwek (Sarastro/Orador), Stanislas Barbeyrac Y Paul Appleby (Tamino), Albina Shagimuratova, Alexander Olczyk Y Rocío Pérez (Queen of the night), Anett Fritsch Y olga Peretyatko (Pamina), Ruth Rosique (Papagena), Andreas Wolf Y Joan Martin-Royo (Papageno) Y Mikeldi Atxalandabaso (Monostatos), who will be seconded by the three ladies of Elena Copons, Gemma Coma-Alabert, Marie-Luise Dreßen and the two men in armor played by Antonio Lozano Y Felipe Bou.
In the pit she will be the musical director of the Royal Theater, Ivor Bolton, expert in the work of Mozart and head between 2004 Y 2014 from Orchestra of the Mozarteum in Salzburg, where he has spent more than 10 years to the interpretation of the classical repertoire in the birthplace of composer.
