Teatro del Lago will broadcast the best shows of its educational artistic season for free
Joining the campaign started by the great theatres in the world, Teatro del Lago will broadcast titles such as Cóppelia, The Animal Carnival and Cantata de los Oficios, starring prominent artists, students from the School of Arts and choirs from the south of Chile.
In order for music and the arts to accompany families in these moments of confinement and prevention of the coronavirus and for culture to continue alive, Teatro del Lago will broadcast free and online the best productions of its nine artistic-educational seasons.
“Desde el Lago / From the lake” is the name of this digital initiative, through which the Theatre will share weekly through its website, the shows performed by great artists together with the students of the Teatro del Lago School of the Arts. These are outstanding productions belonging to the institution and which have been an essential part of the training of the more than 6,000 students that the School of the Arts had from its beginnings in 2007. In addition, during the week of the premiere, material will be shared audiovisual, pedagogical, interviews and backstage typical of the production, through the Teatro del Lago networks and website (www.teatrodellago.cl) in order to learn secrets and enjoy each of the works more.
The debut of “Desde el lago” will be this Saturday 21, at 12:00, with the transmission of the ballet Cóppelia, premiered in July 2019 in Frutillar. With the choreography of Esdras Hernández, the scenery and costume design of the outstanding national creator Pablo Núñez and the lighting design of Claudia Yolín, this work tells the story of Dr. Coppélius, a toymaker, and his Coppélia doll, inspired by Gepetto and Pinocchio, where love for his own creation exceeds reality.
On Saturday March 28, it will be the turn of The Animal Carnival, in a new proposal made in November 2018 by Teatro del Lago, which combines orchestral music and 2D animation. The work, one of the most famous by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, is performed by the Camerata and the Piccolo Orchestra of the School of Arts, to the sound of a series of scenes inspired by the animals in the musical suite, developed by the PunkRobot studio, creator of Story of a Bear.
On Saturday, April 4 at 17:00 hours, will broadcast La Cantata de Los Oficios, a work specially commissioned by Teatro del Lago and the Ibáñez Atkinson Foundation from the national composer Sebastián Errázuriz, as part of the program You Can Sing. Performed and premiered on October 18, 2018 in Espacio Tronador, by more than 300 children from 17 choirs in southern Chile, the Cantata addresses the tasks that were important for the development of the Lake Llanquihue Basin, many of them in force until today .
“Culture plays a fundamental role in this challenging moment, giving us joy, hope and humanity. That is why we join the campaign that the great theatres and opera houses of the world have started and we do it by sharing our educational productions, which are at the center of our vocation as Theatre and School from Frutillar to the world “, explains Cecilia Bravo, Director of Art & Innovation at the Teatro del Lago Foundation.
To carry out this new project, which will last for the period of the Covid 19 emergency, artists such as Esdras Hernández, Claudia Yolin, La Llave Maestra and Sebastián Errázuriz, have generously assigned the rights to their works to be shared with the public.
The next titles will be announced in early April.
