«OperaVision is supported by the“ Creative Europe ”program of the European Union, making the most interesting international opera productions available to the public of the network thanks to the editorial care of Opera Europa, a European association of theaters and festivals – reads a note -. OperaVision currently brings together 29 partners from 17 different countries and offers a constantly enriched catalog with full works, documentaries, interviews, behind the scenes. As is known, the staging of the Magic Flute at the Sferisterio in 2018 was a work of great complexity, the result of over six weeks of rehearsals, based on two fundamental elements: the choice to use the text in Italian (based on a translation poetics by Fedele D’Amico) and the involvement of almost a hundred “citizens of the world”, a sort of collective character who commented and participated in the action ». «In addition to the choir and the soloists – said Graham Vick – almost a hundred people are on the scene, to be exact I think there are ninety-five, including locals (about 60%) and immigrants. Mozart wanted to write an opera for the people. We are in an Italian city where a building serving as a theater was erected next to one of the access doors: the population had to be involved; taking part in the Flute – concluded the English director – means for all of them, Italians and foreigners, to discuss and examine different points of view on existence and coexistence, asking who we are, how we react in contradictory circumstances ». “In the dualism of Mozart’s masterpiece between day and night, good and evil, progress and obscurantism, the director had chosen to favor the political aspect of the eternal conflict between those who have and those who have not, between oppressors and oppressed, with the symbols of contemporary power (finance, technology, religion), outlining in perseverance and the need to build a better world the leitmotif of the show “, concludes the note.
