Video Screening & Interactive Broadcast

21:00-22:10, Wednesday 4th August 2021

The Cockpit

 

Music: Matteo Fania

Words: Giovanni Privitera

 

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances this evening’s broadcast of The Castle of Crossed Destinies has been postponed.

 

 

The Castle of Crossed Destinies, namely the world being read backwards.

 

Spanning the Baroque era to the distant future, and combining animation with live performance, this adaptation of Calvino’s novel shows us knights in Times Square, legendary alchemists, and invisible kings. Using symbolic imagery, tarot cards, and music which travels through the centuries by tailoring old musical forms to a new compositional language, this opera immerses the audience in a unique sung history where everything is connected, perhaps even the destiny of the audience itself.

 

This event will have a live audience in the theatre, and an online audience watching from home.

 

The screening will include a Q&A with the creative team.

 

Age range: All ages, but mostly adults

 

Produced by mg² Opera group

 

 

Venue: The Cockpit, Gateforth Street, London NW8 8EH.
