The idea is to bring this aria to life with elements of the 1700's when it was presented for the first time in Vienna. We will take you on a journey back in time creating an inter-blend of 18th century elegance with an ultraviolet experience. The story follows the quest in search of true love by the central character played by Andrea Sáenz. The fire that fuels her throughout the quest is represented by the rich piano melodies played by DTO. She appears adorned in full 18th century attire, but as her quest becomes increasingly urgent and the dichotomy of passion and pain escalate and collide, she then begins to literally dismantle before the viewers’ eyes. She is left with no choice, but to seek within and bathe in the fountain of her origins. The story culminates as the central character emerges anew in new-found divinity and freedom.
