APOIDEA, a short hexagonal opera
"A princess… a kingdom… a destiny."
Short opera in six brief episodes narrating the life of a queen who is forced to adopt a role for which she never was given a choice.
The story is inspired by the most meaningful stages of a queen bee's life, a life that has all the ingredients of a tragedy.
A good portion of the music has a distinctive Mexican character, resulting from the use of particular rhythms, melodies and timbres.
- chamber sextet: flute, clarinet, violin, cello, guitar and percussion (shakers, claves, guiro, vibraphone)
- approx. 25 minutes (without counting breaks for costume and scenography changes)
