NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE
La Scala presents the world premiere of Fabio Vacchi’s composition with choreographies
by Mauro Bigonzetti: a musical and choreographic creation, a project with a new approach to topical yet universal themes rarely expressed in ballet. Madina is based on a libretto by Emmanuelle de Villepin inspired by her novel La ragazza che non voleva morire. Young Madina has been forced to become a kamikaze but she decides not to kill. It is a stunning act that sets off reactions, conflicting feelings, and hope for change. Ancestral impulses, symbolic places, the perverse dynamics of violence and self-destruction depict a world where good and evil are opposed but continue to mingle. In this work of Dance and Theatre words, music and movement coexist in a synthesis of the traditional and contemporary forms of the many genres of musical theatre, erasing the boundaries between these diverse expressions.
