OPERA BY JOAN MAGRANÉ

The composer Joan Magrané and playwright Marc Rosich have written a new opera based on the romantic scenes between Tirant and Carmesina, the protagonists of the medieval classic Tirant lo Blanc by Joanot Martorell.

Magrané —winner of the Reina Sofía Prize for Composition— and Rosich —who in 2007 adapted the medieval novel for a magnificent theatre production by Calixto Bieito— start out from sensuality and seduction as the dramatic mesh for the proposal. In their hands, the great medieval frieze takes on the intimate character of a chamber opera, with three singers alone on stage and a reduced musical group. Both the treatment of the voice and the instrument selection set out from a modern and theatrical concept with expressive resonances, while at the same time drawing on the late-medieval madrigal tradition.

Libretto by Marc Rosich (from the novel Tirant lo Blanc by Joanot Martorell)

With the special collaboration of Jaume Plensa
