IN SEARCH OF DESDEMONA
Music Drama by Carmela Altamura
Director: Silvana Mangione
In Search of Desdemona is a play about Giuseppe Verdi and his librettist, Arrigo Boito, looking for the ideal voice for Verdi's new opera, Otello. He finds her in the most unexpected place. The story is at times comic, but also tragic. The play gives one the opportunity to know oneself through the characters and their development. Verdi, through his music, takes the audience to a world where even the evil characters become human and almost likeable. Verdi is relevant at all times, because he composes both for the prince as well as for the court jester -- the outcast. When Verdi finds Desdemona, he really discovers a part of himself.
Not to be missed! The interpreters are also winners of the Altamura/Caruso International Voice Competition. All music will be performed at the Verdi tuning of A=432 Hz.
