“Advance over me, infinite darkness of light”: wrote Rainer Maria Rilke in his collection of lyrics, inspired by the night and its angel, and the love he never found. This is the inspiration for the opera composed by Adriano Guarnieri, which will be debuting at the Teatro Goldoni, directed by Giancarlo Cauteruccio. The composition stages four imaginary faces, poetic visions telling of the inner nature of the human soul, which materialise and then disappear in a dreamlike manner: the vocality flows seamlessly and uninterrupted, in a timing which is not rhythmically identifiable, to present the drama of the human soul.
