A dynamic work depicting forbidden love

Tristezza di Sirena ~amore proibito~

This opera is based on the Greek myth of mermaids, and is a story about a forbidden love between different races, and a man and woman burdened with a tragic fate.

The long-standing conflict between humans and mermaids, the love-hate relationship born from a fateful encounter while each shouldering the burden of a blood relative's unintentional death, and the unbreakable bond between the clan and mermaids they must protect. , dynamically expresses the emotions that change from love and regret to madness.

This is a music entertainment work produced entirely in Italian, with Japanese narration and subtitles.

The entire piece has a classical crossover style, and can be described as an easy-to-understand easy opera that incorporates the essence of Japanese accents.

< Media Criticism >A new opera, ``Sirena of Sorrow - Forbidden Love,'' in which Maria Seiren, a dual-voiced vocalist who uses both countertenor and tenor, plays the roles of a man and a woman, was performed at Yakult Hall in Shinbashi.The story is said to be based on the Greek myth of mermaids, and depicts a forbidden love between different races. The entire performance was sung in Italian with subtitles.Japanese narration and theatrical elements were also included to make the story easier to understand.The flyers and other materials are labeled as ``Easy Opera.''I watched the final episode, and what was very interesting was that the seats were filled with people from all walks of life.The performance was attended by everyone from young women to the elderly, including children, indicating that the performance was not aimed at a specific demographic.Even so, at the end of the song, a shout of "Bravo" was heard, and you could tell that each of them was enjoying the performance.It was a night where I felt strongly that opera performances are not just for a certain number of opera fans.(Opera Express)
