Conceived for orchestra, choir, solo singers and dancers, the work is an adaptation of the opera conceived by the famous Austrian composer and pianist, and was adapted for the current production by the Cuban playwright and poet Norge Espinosa Mendoza.
This presentation at the Kennedy Center will do without a chorus and will feature an actor from the El Publico Cuban theater company.
Likewise, the presence of three dancers from the Caribbean island registered in the OtroLado company, with choreography by Norge Cedeño, stands out.
After its premiere this Thursday, the performances will continue Friday and Saturday in this capital, under the general direction of master Ulises Hernández. The world premiere of this version of Tito’s Clemency took place last October in Cuba, during the fifth edition of the Havana Mozart Festival.
It is a significant piece for the world culture, the penultimate opera that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart premiered in life, in the National Theater of Prague, in 1791.
