The excessive passions that yielded to the public from the time of Verdi, mirror of the spirit of the Romantic era, resonate in this contemporary setting, obviously. But the axis of this proposal puts the emphasis on the war, and in this case a war between brothers where irrational actions, without space for reflection, are credible.
A long and exhausting war of trenches where wanders a ghostly human landscape. The nonsense of the hatred of the soldiers and the four protagonists advances in its passionate story of love and revenge, that it is at last possible.
The stage evolves into the public eye and it is inspired by the First World War, that hundred-year old conflict that, supposedly, would never again to repeat.
