Zoltan Paulinyi Brazilian New Music

Opera Library

11.07.2011 News
See complete video (sung in Portuguese). Score available here.

Characters: Writer (man), Lawyer (woman).

Argument: A writer and a lawyer go to the Library with different aims: the first, looking for ideas in order to create a treatise about the dialogue, the other to prepare herself to become a judge. In the silence of that place, exchanging glances motivates them to imagine judments about each other, arising passion and anger.

Setting: The orchestra is placed at the center of the stage (the library), forming a barrier between two tables that will be occupied by the writer and the lawyer. The empty table will be the writer's; the lawyer's one already has some study books indicating she is around. The music starts before the singers enter.
