Director Gemma Beltran demonstrates the great theater of Mozart’s opera La finta giardiniera (The Disguised Gardener). Her creation is unique in that it is carried by talented young singers, riding on the wave of Mozart’s amazing art – the magnificent strength of his music, and his deft definition of each specific role. The profoundly passionate characters recall the theatrical tradition of commedia dell’arte, in their reliance on the energy of collective play with a good dose of humor.
Beltran’s playful take on this youth opera shows the fragile balance of its characters, who cling to the extremes of tragedy and comedy, consumed by desire and the passion of love. Through the power of today’s performing arts, these 21st-century performers, actors and singers bring La finta giardiniera back to life as ‘Totaltheater’.
