The Bird – opera

The bird, a short opera for an actor and female voice (2012)

Presented in the Composers’ Festival at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (7th June 2012)
Singer: Laura Polence; Actor: Kasper Tarenskeen; Director: Jan Hulst; Composer: Fátima Fonte.

An old man recalls a journey he made once into a forest. There, he found something so beautiful that it could only had escaped from the Garden of Eden: a Paradise Bird. To find it, he had to live in the midst of the incomprehensible mysteries of the wilderness.

This opera was developed in a workshop involving the Conservatory and the Theaterschool of Amsterdam, coordinated by Javier Piñón.
