The Teatro Real returns to the fray with a dazzling EVENING OF THE GODS by RICHARD WAGNER (1876) where Pablo Heras-Casado and Manfred Voss make magic in a work of more than 5 hours that flew by for me.
I should applaud so many other artists who dedicated their best version to us yesterday, but above all, draw attention to three issues:
For a show like the opera to keep you absorbed for more than 5 hours, many people have had to do their job very well. Congratulations. There is some impressive work behind it.
About the staging; The lighting dresses the work very well. I especially liked the expressionist play with shadows, their cutouts in the painting and the lighting during Hagen’s dream.
I want to congratulate you and thank you. I had a lot of fun yesterday.
The works of the Teatro Real always elevate the message of culture. What is less visible is the quality with which so many technical professionals express their ability and love for the art.
Working in a play at the Teatro Real must mean elevating culture and placing the spectator in a place where we had not considered being. It exemplifies how talent must be accompanied by good teams but above all by good professionals. Each person who goes on stage and each one who is behind the scenes represent the culture and that is why, in their creation, respect for each other is breathed.
In the audiovisual sector and in the broadcast sector we do not have the historical journey that theater, opera, and ballet have. We are also part of a show and hopefully, our work model also supposes in the future the effort of a career as a solfeggio or the possibility of surrounding ourselves with creatives like Richard Wagner who almost two centuries later, has removed us in an epic plot to the eyes of Pablo Heras-Casado and from which even JR Tolkien seems to have gotten some good idea.
