The Castle Of Crossed Destinies - The Cockpit | Thespie

The Castle of Crossed Destinies, namely the world being read backwards. Spanning the Baroque era to the distant future, and combining animation with live performance, this adaptation of Calvino’s novel shows us knights in Times Square, legendary alchemists, and invisible kings. Using symbolic imagery, tarot cards, and music which travels through the centuries by tailoring old musical forms to a new compositional language, this opera immerses the audience in a unique sung history where everything is connected, perhaps even the destiny of the audience itself.
