Installation and performance. 80 min. 2009
A project by Vicente Arlandis.
Vienna State Opera. Performance of the opera Otello by Verdi. Plácido Domingo as the main character. Last day of the season: 30 June 1991. The audience, about 700 people applauded after the performance without stopping for 80 minutes.
"Right at the beginning we felt a kind of electricity in the air, the feeling that that night the stars were in the right place, Sternstunde, as they say in German, and at the end of Act II, the duet between Othello - Lake, the audience exploded, it became like a beast. When we went over the applause. The solo, group, and after half an hour or 40 or 50 calls on scene, we continued there. Back then we were tired of smiling, the way you smile when you're at a wedding reception, and after an hour and twenty minutes and 101 curtain calls, we went out!".
