G. F. Händel
Stage and Costumedesign
The planet is rotating. Everybody is rotating.
The planet is a machine. Everybody is a machine.
King Serse loves the peace he finds in music. But peace and quietness are not an emperor’s duties. In Ombra mai fu Serse sings about the ideal natural state. It’ s about being alone and it’s about the deep believe that just far away from the humans he can find happiness. But the idyll of peace and music will be fractured by the machinery of war and power… And by his constant need for love.
