Salvatore Sciarrino

Venere e Adone

Introduction at 5.20 pm

Sounds from the silence. They come closer, move and dissolve into darkness. Their very nature is being and non-being, arising and passing away - like all living beings in the eternal illusion of life and death. They are sounds like those that surround people, a music close to nature. They tell of mythical figures: Venus and Mars, who once begat Cupid. Cupid, who is now to revenge his betrayed father. The beautiful Adonis, who must die for his love of Venus. And above all: the monster who knows no affection, no love, no hate, least of all himself. It waits, unknown and deadly, maltreated by the voices of the world. An ancient story winds through the thicket of mythological entanglements and finds new paths. Who will triumph, love or death?
