Introduction Program Gallery More info L'ENIGMA DI LEA Casablancas, Argullol and Portaceli, their talents in the World première of this Catalan opera, conducted by Josep Pons Lea, a creature who has belonged to God and exists to serve the divine pleasure (“pure instinct, crystalline sensuality”), lives in a place beyond time and cannot reveal her secret. The bearer of immortality, she is under surveillance from two monstrous beings who guarantee morality in opposition to individual freedom. This opera, the first composed by Benet Casablancas, to a text by writer Rafael Argullol, expresses the ideal that was the last of the Romantic Utopias: that of touching the Absolute. Josep Pons will head a team of experts in contemporary music who will tackle the challenging score, while Carme Portacelli, one of the finest contemporary stage directors, will be in charge of the mise-en-scène.
