Triennale Teatro dell'Arte
Romeo Castellucci, known all over the world for creating performances that transcend the boundaries of theatre, is one of this season’s most significant personalities. In Schwanengesang D744 (“Swan Song”, a title borrowed from Schubert’s Lied), music assumes a central role in the performance, interpreted by pianist Alain Franco and by the extraordinary singer Kerstin Avemo and co-produced by Festival d’Avignon and Opera La Monnaie/De Munt of Brussels.
“While I was seating in the dark in the obsolete cave of a theatre – writes the director – listening to the music of Schubert, a question was born: how is it possible that this singing woman has experienced what I have not? And yet – yes – I am certain that I did it, at some point. How does she know my intimacy more profoundly than I do?”.
