One-act play by Stefano Sabene for dancers, voice-over, singer, medieval traversa, viella, electroacoustic.
Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) determined a change in the Middle Age, thanks to his culture and spirituality. She left lot of literary texts she herself set to music, with surprising results in terms of vocal extension and elaboration of melismas. My composition starts from Antifone and Responsori by Hildegard, expanding into electro-acoustic elaborations on which dancers, actors, singers and musicians interact. It can be set up in theater, concert hall or church.
Listen an excerpt from the opera, O vis eternitatis.
