"Inventing the diptych of this" new work ", commissioned by the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale di Spoleto, and I Ermanna Montanari, delicate and powerful allies to music by Cristian Carrara, we have built around this heartbreaking, double movement" - the director Marco Martinelli explains the creative process that led to the writing of the play and continues - "The first is titled The wing player, and tells the dramatic fall of a slot machine player, a drowning nell'azzardo, where every emotional bond is sacrificed on the altar of nothing; the second panel is titled Song of clichés, and reverses the negativity of the usual expression in a collective dance in which the "place" that you live is a place to share, a place "common" in fact, made up of songs and shouts of children and broken bread for all. "
"The intention is to create a diptych of work seats facing each other as in a mirror.

Two distinct works but written with the same organic and designed to complement one another. Even the music itself to be shaped by this principle. On one hand, writing a scathing and cold, the other a sincere and ethereal as possible. " With these words the composer Cristian Carrara explained the musical choices that led to the writing of the diptych.

To desire is to look for what you are not, you can not have or you have difficulty to have. The true loves are not liable if you do not encounter a difficulty. Albeit speculatively developed in a dialectical relationship with a common sense of virtue, vice Bacocco of the game that cultivates and his wife Serpilla contrast, is their precious difficulty. With the unfolding drama of the various vicissitudes, the inclusion of musical anachronisms, and some must disguise, their agreement is recomposed and manifests to the sound of the beating of their hearts: 'Tap Tap-pe-pe-pe Tup Tup- pe - makes my heart '. On stage, the two performers create a relationship with the music writing from which arise the actions that put them in the report, in the common quest to become the body and substance of every note played by the fleeting vision of a dream.

Under a system of grotesque scenes of "Alfred, Alfred," the dramatic irony donatoniana matter becomes ideal, highly ductile, against an implacable formal geometry of juxtaposed panels as television sketches; in them are intercut scenes of unlikely doctors and nurses at the bedside of diabetic composer and initialed by surreal monologues in the interludes that accompany each scene, until the final all'esilarante concerted Italian. The interludes in which these figures appear almost Fellini, are characterized by the effects of spoken / sung (Sprechgesang) transformed into fictitious duets with instruments / characters who are sometimes the way to certain clichés of Italian opera.
