American Spiritual Ensemblease_foto_web

The most pure style of the Negro Spiritual. The famous American Spiritual Ensemble returns to Spain to offer at the International Festival of Santander the most native version of “American Negro Spiritual”, as an example of the definitive interculture over time. The fusion of African and European villages in the United States of American  from the late years of the XVIII Century and the first decades of the XIX make up an exemplary songbook that today we know thanks to the investigative and interpretive work of the hardworking groups, such as the American Spiritual Ensemble. The religious nostalgia of the Negro Spiritual is the intercultural proposal of this virtuous group of Americans that claims our sensibility to the pleasure of choral singing.

Duration for approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes.

An Otelo without age for a public without limitations.

One more time, nonchalantly, a nerve point and above all else a feeling of humor and tenderness, the opera converts an argument to tell a story. Or said in a more successful form: the stories allow us to get close to all the audience in the opera. And to the theatre. “I tell you… an opera. Otel(l)o”  offers us a challenge: to tell that which shouldn’t be told to someone who wants to listen. Playing to be little and to be older, to learn what is “to be jealous” and to enjoy, of course, the music of Verdi.
