For the first time in Portugal, The Tempest is being staged with the work of composer Jean Sibelius, produced for Shakespeare’s text, in a project of encounters. First of all, two geniuses, Sibelius and Shakespeare – theater and symphonic music. A show of epic and oneiric content. With actors, singers, choir and orchestra – Kyiv National Operetta’s Theatre, Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra and Choir of the Summer Festival – Participative Project – an artistic object is created that aims to highlight, in 2023, the drives, emotions and relationships of human nature and, above all, what results from the dialectics between the individual and the political mechanisms of power. At a time when humanity is going through a bloody war in the middle of Europe, it seems essential to put on stage as a central theme what can be read in Prospero’s message: only forgiveness and redemption can convey a future and an idea of continuity.
