Papagena

Papagena and Papageno. Two characters within “The Magic Flute” by W. A. Mozart. How would their lives as a couple look like nowadays?

This is a very special project. An experiment on the role of cultural innovation applied to the socioeconomic and demographic conditions for the region of Galicia (Northwestern Spain). An electronic “pocket opera” aimed to bring new opera productions to smaller cities and towns in a region where opera is just something performed in 2-3 locations.
