Dolce far niente (pleasant idleness in Italian) is a musical performance consisting of well-known arias, duets and ensembles from different operas, creating a new theatrical narrative that has little to do with the plots of the operas used. Here, the music will become the creator of the atmosphere, and you will hear famous arias in a possibly unexpected context.
The performance of Dolce far niente will invite the audience to a sweet and light dinner of an aristocratic family, whose participants will also feel like the audience of the performance. Against the background of a carefree dinner, as boredom sets in, the image of a family idyll slowly begins to dissolve: in the course of the evening, everything gets out of control and the real, undisguised faces of the family and their relationships begin to emerge. Will this be the family‘s last dinner together?
