Tristezza di Sirena ~amore proibito~Sorrowful Sirena~Forbidden Love~ (Replay) All 5 acts Italian ...

Orchestra and choir of over 100 members

A shocking parallel world musical drama.

The world's first production of ``Sirena of Sorrow~Forbidden Love~'' is an innovative concert-style Italian opera that took inspiration from the monster siren from Greek mythology ``Odyssey'' and the ``mono-madness'' of Noh theater.It took three years to perform. I completed it. The ``craziness'' that exists in human nature is expressed through singing and acting, and it is a spectacular ending in which all the performers go crazy. This is a challenging attempt to pursue a style unique to Japan that can be called ``crazy aesthetics'' through opera.

The scenario structure and composition from the overture to all five acts also incorporates the ``johakyu'' format. The quiet aria that hints at madness, and the frantic performance of the piano and violin, full of the tension of conflict and harmony, also play the role of ``flowers in the midst of madness.'' In addition, as is typical of Easy Opera, an old sailor acting as a guide and three child actors appear before the curtain, along with Japanese narration and subtitled video to make the story development easier to understand. This work is also an ambitious work, written entirely in Italian, in order to send Maria Selen from Japan to the world as a two-voice opera singer. Please enjoy the parallel world of Maria Seren.
