In few words:
For his residency as stage director at the Academy, Simon Valastro will build a staging workshop with scenes taken from Perrault and Grimm’s tales which stories inspired composers such as Rossini and Massenet (Cenerentola) and Humperdinck (Hänsel und Gretel). In these colourful musical landscape, Cenerentola, Hänsel and Gretel, unconscious but supported by their good fairies and preceptors, find their ways to recognition and happiness facing danger. How does music express what the texts could not? How to tell and put on the stage the strength of enchantment of these three musical tales?
