Penelope sleeps


Penelope sleeps is an opera in essay form by Mette Edvardsen and Matteo Fargion. The idea for this piece developed out from their first collaboration oslo (2017), a piece by Mette Edvardsen in which Matteo Fargion was invited to write music for a choir. A setting of one long text, the music played an important role in the piece, an anti-choir dispersed amongst the audience and without a conductor. In Penelope sleeps the experimental approach and work with the format of the medium is still in question. The relation between voice and music, space and scale are important, but perhaps rather than alluding to operatic images we think of drawing lines to trace a horizon. Opera as a starting point, a long hidden and shared secret desire to tackle this medium, although perhaps motivated slightly differently for each of them. The text is written in prose form, like an essay. Essay from the French essayer, means to try, to attempt. Opera in Italian means to work, to labour. In this attempt to work a space opens up, bringing the two artists into unknown landscapes while at the same time allowing them to pursue their own artistic paths. Text: Mette Edvardsen.
