…At the centre the taste of play and irony... On stage a show that speaks a young, contaminated language... HOPERA proposes a unique and original point of view to approach even newcomers, to this kind of music, to have fun and enjoy its freshness and modernity. -Donna Moderna
…HOPERA, a show that wants to give a new reading of the Opera heritage, in a more youthful and vital way... -Il Resto del Carlino
Hopera is a dreamlike journey in the melodies of famous Bel Canto. The choreography is composed of a high-energy movement language that is drawn from different genres and styles. Sprinkled with gestural plots, nonsense and a touch of madness, the arias by Verdi, Leoncavallo, Rossini, Handel and Mozart are re-interpreted in the dance piece with a new perspective that is filled with subtle humour and youthful vigour. Tradition and innovation are knitted nicely together and make this work appeal to the audience both young and old.
