Opera in three parts (2018)
Libretto by Rafael Argullol
Commissioned by the Gran Teatre del Liceu
Benet Casablancas is widely acclaimed as one of the leading Spanish composers of his generation, and his first opera, L’enigma di Lea, is the fruit of his close collaboration with award-winning writer Rafael Argullol. Reality and myth intertwine and become one in this story of love, grief and passion, as Lea wanders through time and space, a castaway of existence, and the bearer of immortality and a secret that cannot be revealed. The winner of several awards, L’enigma di Lea was declared ‘a roaring theatrical success… beautifully staged and exquisitely sung’ by Barcelona Metropolitan.
