“La amnesia de Clío”, an opera composed by Fernando Buide, Professor of Composition at CSM Galicia, will premiere on November 10 at the Galician Auditorium (Santiago de Compostela). With one foot in dystopia, this ambitious large-scale contemporary opera combines historical reality, political fiction and an unexpected look at the patriarchal perspective.
Focused on the career of a spy, singer, actress and muse, also remembered for her time in Italian politics and the world of pornography, it will feature soloists Raquel Lojendio, Sebastiá Peris and Marina Pardo, conducted by Paul Daniel, titular director and artistic of the Real Filharmonía de Galicia.
With a libretto by Fernando Epelde and staged by Marta Pazos, the show will feature the Royal Philharmonic of Galicia and the Orfeón Terra a Nosa de Miro Moreira.
After the premiere on November 10, it can be enjoyed on two more occasions: at the Colón Theater in A Coruña on November 12 and on the 14 at the Municipal Auditorium in Ourense.
“La amnesia de Clío” is a project carried out with the Leonardo Grant to Researchers and Cultural Creators 2017 of the BBVA Foundation. A Voadora production in co-production with the Santiago-Royal Philharmonic Consortium of Galicia, the Galego Dramatic Center and Friends of the Santiago Opera; in collaboration with the Orfeón Terra A Nosa; with the support of the Diputación de A Coruña, Concello de Santiago and Concello de A Coruña.
