Mini-Opera: 65 Min. "The Legendary Cupcake and the Wall of Thoughts" - Stage Direction, Concept, Screenplay, Stage Design and Costumes
In collaboration with musicians Céline Steudler(Soprano), Nadia Catania(Mezzo Soprano) and Marc Golta(Pianist)
“The Legendary Cupcake and the Wall of Thoughts” is told in an open setting, where three characters named Ernestine, Audora and the Pianoman are separated by an imaginary wall and are coerced, through the outcome of serendipitous circumstances to transcend the boundaries of jealousy, loneliness and rejection; wherein the cupcake acts as a catalyst to ignite this transformation.
The staging is done in a combined style of opera and emphasis on gesture, creating imaginary matter through action: The story is told with descriptive, suggestive and emphatic gesture inside a minimal décor, however reinforced with the use of several props. The entire piece is intertwined with the music of Mozart(voice and piano), which deepens and strengthens the meaning of the plot.
