Cor de Teatre offers a performance to delight all types of public featuring fragments of works by Bach, Mozart and Verdi.
The Iliad and The Odyssey, the two great epic poems attributed to Homer, which are considered to be among the foundational narratives of European culture, provide the basis for the show ‘Troia, una veritable odissea!’, which can be seen from 13 to 30 December in the Gran Sala at Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (TNC). This production is by the theatrical and vocal group Cor de Teatre, who will be offering an a cappella journey through both the story of the texts and the history of western music, with fragments of works by Purcell, Bach, Händel, Mozart, Verdi and Wagner. David Costa and Josep Maria Segura i Bernadas are the directors of this spectacular production.
In the show, the spectators will live the Trojan War and the adventures of Ulysses on his return journey to Ithaca, with a treatment which, according to Cor de Teatre, "will caress the senses, from a rigorous, daring, original and exciting point of view”. Cor de Teatre has been working for two decades searching for new sounds, experimenting with their expressive potential and interpretation. The group has performed in various European countries, not only in theatres but also in churches and auditoriums. David Costa himself is the author of the textless script for Troy, while Joan Maria Segura is responsible for choreography. Set design is by Xavier Erra, and Marta Rafa is responsible for costumes and characterisation.
The show is a production by Somfònics and Temporada Alta. Additional information is available at the following link.
