Two Roads


Two Road is a chamber opera for mezzo-soprano, physical actor, choir & dance ensemble, electronic, piano, percussions and movable set. Although framed as an opera due to his musical nature, this performance embraces the set, the choreography, and the light and sound design, as part of the dramaturgy elements that are written in the “libretto” following a parallel creative process.
