Hersi Matmuja performs in “Teatrin Olimpik” of Rome
In the center of a new work of the Orchestra of Piazza Vittorio – production of the “Philharmonic Academy” of Rome and the “Les Nuits de Fourvière” Festival lies the idea of Don Giovanni’s androgen, entrusted to the female voice of Petra Magon, the unforgettable night queen in “Magic Flute” mozartian, the first production of this orchestra. From this idea emerges and musical dramaturgy, the beginning with which is linked a contemporary variant of the seventh-century myth. An “other” vision of the protagonist opens from a different reading of the relationship between the characters. The directors are Andrea Renzi and Mario Tronco, while musical collaboration is entrusted to Leandro Piccioni and Pino Pecorelli. The group is also Mama Marjas, a very famous reggae singer in the role of the last protagonist Carmen, along with Hersi Matmuja, Evandro Dos T’Reis, Omar Lopez Valle, Houcine Ataa and Sompne Boo, who since 2015 is vocalist a Neapolitan group.
Don Giovanni, as a revelation of “Cab Calloway” in an imaginary “Cotton Club”, in an environment of the 1920s, but quite contemporary conducts his orchestra at a pace of freedom and persecution. A place full of energy, light and liveliness where the musicians set on different heights, summing up a circular space cut off by some mirror panels, move as protagonists in their musical and existential escape. Donna Elvira is the Albanian lyric singer Hersi Matmuja. Hersi is graduated in Santa Cecilia Academy of Rome and has started a worldwide career career as a lyrical singer.
