ESCUELA DE LAS ARTES – PREVIEW
Children’s Opera PINOCCHIO – Preparations underway for the Teatro del Lago’s next production
Inspired by the famous fairy-tale by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi, we undertake the adventure of presenting the first children’s opera produced by the Teatro del Lago, in a version steeped in the local tradition of Southern Chile.
The story has been set to music by the German composer Gloria Bruni, using a libretto by Ursel Scheffler – a story, and an opera, for people of all ages, ideally suited to introducing audiences of any age to the fascinating world of opera.
First of all, we have built a puppet theatre together with the artisan workshop Museo Taller (https://museotaller.cl), which will help us give performances at schools in Frutillar and the Los Lagos region and enable children aged 9 to 11 engage their imagination with the work Pinocchio. The project is designed for three years and is generously supported by the Colombian-Chilean highway company ISA Intervial https://www.intervialchile.cl/. As part of the Teatro del Lago Spring Festival in November 2022, an entertaining and surprising evening will be dedicated to Pinocchio! More on this in the next newsletter and at the ENCUENTRO ENTRE AMIGOS in February 2022.
