Presentation

When the clock strikes midnight, a group of Romani Gypsies gather around the fire to learn their romantic fate in the mystical tarot deck, including the wild Candelas, embittered by jealousy and grief. To win back her lost love, she turns to her people's ancestral spells and incantations. On the other side of the world, beyond the Pyrenees and the Alps, a virginal Moravian peasant boy vainly attempts to stave off the irresistible charms of a young Romani girl but becomes obsessed with thoughts of their first embrace. His days in the fields become an endless wait until dusk when he can fall into the arms of his beloved, scorned by the rest of the village. Written towards the end of the First World War on both sides of Europe, the bewitching melodies of Love, the Magician (1915) and The Diary of One Who Disappeared (1921) offer passionate fantasies on free-spirited, mysterious love. The American stage director Daniel Fish ties all this together in a single show closely assisted by choreographer Manuel Liñán and by Arthur Lavandier, who has composed a new orchestration for Janáček's cycle.
