Teatro San Carlo, ''Tristan und Isolde''

Naples

The gigantic bow of the boat separated in two parts, that is the symbol of the separation between Isotta and Tristano.The cloudy sky is a videoprojection effected on a Rear-projection screen realized with the film RTE - Temporale.The intervention of one of the greats of the contemporary scenography is immediately recognizable: Ezio Frigerio, known to be an experimenter of new materials with which he has often gotten uncommon dramatic contrasts, used here instead, for the realization of the sea backdrop, the fabric MSC - Spalmato Cuba, a known material by Peroni in a new and original way.

After the medieval opening, the third act transposes the tale of the opera in a hospital's ward of our days.The curtains were manufactured with white HSE - Tempesta Silk.
The transparency of the white draperies made of HSE - Tempesta Silk, placed side by side to the black ones made of EVT - Trevira Voile that have been stretched on the frames. The sea is a realization performed with the silver fabric MSC - Spalmato Cuba.

The sea was realized with the fabric MSC - Spalmato Cuba, silver colour, opportunely worked in folds to get the particular reflecting effect.Illuminated by small and dense flashes of light in circular motion, the sea backdrop took life to the point to assume an extraordinary illusion of undulation of the water. The installation gathered the share of Pasqual, that was a Strehler student, and of Frigerio and Squarciapino, historical collaborators of the great Italian director.
