What a synchronicity! On my last posting, I predicted that Faro would be the site of a new modernism…
…and it happened!
What a sight!
This was a stunning work of alchemical theatre about the mythology of Venus, her passage through the eight gates, represented by the eight apostles, and her disappearance into the Underworld where she meets her partner, the Sun, in the mystical conjunctio. The music was so enthralling that I could really feel the pain of her departure as she turns from the union to complete her Underworld journey, from which she rises on the other side of the Sun as the Morning Star.
The performance was an embodiment of the mystical union, complete with the demonstration of the heart opening.
