Concert II

  • Agustín Castilla-Ávila

    Adán de Eva

    chamber opera

    • Katharina Schwarz – soprano
    • Daniel Weiler – baritone
    • Marina Iglesias Gonzalo – flute
    • Christina Schorn-Mancinelli – guitar
    • Juanjo Guillem – percussion

Adam is dreaming. As he wakes up, he finds himself inside Eve´s dream. He wakes Eve up. But they are still dreaming; they are in Paradise. As they wake up in the universe, they know that they are still dreaming... They travel through a cycle of dreams till our life. As they will wake from life´s dream, where will they go next? The next dream will be the death.

“Adán de Eva” (“Adam of Eve”) is, through a circle-of-dreams trip, a bittersweet feministic version of the beginning of times and the beginning of languages.
