Opera on the leap from SEE to READ and from READ to SEE.
See drawings and read letters. See letters and see words and see phrases.
Let’s show pictures and show letters.
Let’s try to read images.
How do you learn to read? How do you learn to see?
On this second day in which we joined Jorge Salgueiro and Gonçalo M. Tavares, for our Opera for Babies and the big Boys – from 9 months of gestation to 9 years of recreation – we added Miguel Jesus (staging) and Rachel Caiano (costumes and sets) to the team creative. The result could not be better!
«Don’t stop because there’s no way
Stop because something that is beautiful
It is now in front of you.
Beauty is an obstacle to your feet.
Do not go because something beautiful has prevented you.
Beauty is in the world
to slow down
this is the truth. »
