“Opus 2012” brings together music composition, performance and site-specific intervention to stage the current situation of Western society on a political and existential level. The project presents as an opera the State of the Union Address that Obama delivered in 2012. The discourse has been translated into Italian, adapted and harmonized to selected musical parts of the second act of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. “Opus 2012” questions the dramatization of political discourse and the current operating systems, reflecting on the superficiality of society and at the same time offering an analysis of the figures of power.
