The Austrian ensemble Schallfeld has chosen to focus on the adventure of the young Italian composer Maurizio Azzan, who set out on the traces of Ariadne. She who helped Theseus to destroy the Minotaur, embodies sleeping beauty, abandonment and solitude on her island, perplexity and doubt, all mythological and contemporary attributes. An intimate voice diffracted in the audience, the non-linear narration conceived by librettist Daniele Bellomi, Ariadne embodies wandering more than a marked path.
