NEW OPERA FEDRA IN COLÓN THEATER
From November 18th to 30th, the biggest Argentine Coliseum, the Colón Theater, presents the world premiere of opera Fedra. The work was entrusted by the theater to resident composer Mario Perusso and it’s based on the book of Marcelo Perusso. Guillermina Tassi collaborated on the choreographic design and Rubén Conde on the lights design, to create this representation of the classical mythological character Fedra.
The story is based on the life of Fedra, daughter of Minos and Pasífae, and woman of Teseo, who fell in love with its step son Hipólito (son of Teseo and Antíope). As Hipólito did not respond to her insinuations, she acussed him of raping her and killed herself. Teseo believed on Fedra’s version and offered his son to Poseidon’s fury. As Hipólito survived Poseidon’s set up, Aphrodite told Teseo the truth and father and son reconciled.
