...because Opera is everything
Opera Moments The Greeks ascribed Art to the Gods. Music was seen as a gift to Men. We see Orpheus descending to Hades protected by the magic of his lyre. Aristotle understood the social function of Art in the spiritual liberation he called catharsis. Through terror and pity the people sublimated their emotions in the ritual representation of Greek Tragedy. In the XVII century The Florentine Camerata sought to synthesize the Arts into one higher form: Opera. Today, we experience the fragmentation of Contemporary Man, with the subsequent loss of the spiritual liberation through the shared experience of catharsis. While in the 18th and 19th centuries with the rise of the amateur movement, artists and audience intermingled on almost equal ground, making the Creative Act a collective experience, now the pursuit of perfection and technique for its own sake, can turn Opera into luxurious and cold scenography removed from its essence. In the words of Carlos Jimeno, our texts messages can be the recitatives of the 21st Century. In our pursuit of beauty, artists and audience join in their enjoyment of the Artistic Act. Social bonds are created and strengthened. Our aesthetic sense is metaphoric, not evident, but poetic and at times even surreal. We blur the boundaries of Time and Space, Imagination and Reality. We invite you to experience the elements of these readings of great operas.
