Variations on The Magic Flute, in La Seca

Up until the 28th of June, the Dei Furbi company will be staging their particular variations on the Mozart opera

In their sixth production, the Dei Furbi company, well experienced in the creation of quality musical performances, take on the Mozart opera The Magic Flute.

The Dei Furbi variations on the famous Mozart work use the original libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder and music by the Austrian wunderkind as a starting point for their interpretation which, though transgressional, is respectful of the original.
 
During an intense performance which lasts just over one hour, six actors perform a coordinated, a cappella vocal exercise to the continuous accompaniment of multifarious gestures that draw upon the use of masks, dance-inspired movement, and clowns.
 
The text, which has been reduced and adapted by the director and writer, Gemma Beltran, never loses sight of our everyday current reality and includes some surprising linguistic gags. David Costa and Paco Viciana are those responsible for the adaptation of the original music.
 
These variations by Dei Furbi never fail to recall the comic elements of the opera, and neither do they eschew other, more transcendental interpretations. As Gemma Beltran herself says of The Magic Flute, “Mozart expresses clearly and precisely that it is thanks to the power of the music (the art), that the characters are able to remain cheerful while surviving their darker moments of fear”.
 
Barcelona Culture users may obtain invitations to the performance. More information here.
