La flauta mágica (2003)

La flauta mágica (2003) HIDVL

Rolf and Heidi Abderhalden of Mapa Teatro direct the Ópera de Colombia in the 'The Magic Flute' by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mapa Teatro's rendition of the classic singspiel explores the magic nature of its plot, placing the piece at the crossroads of fantasy, comedy and philosophy - the realm of dreams, that mysterious zone of humanity. In this surreal performance (where fantastic masks, multimedia projections, surreal costumes and magnificent opera singing coexist) faces are almost imperceptible, gestures are almost intangible, psyche becomes voice, voice becomes body, body becomes space, space becomes time, and characters are constantly transfigured and transformed.
