Design Statement

The intent of this Project was creating a Brazilian version of the opera “Where the wild things are”, composed by Oliver Knussen based on Maurice Sendak’s homonymous book. The opera was first performed by Glyndebourne Touring Opera at the National Theatre, London on 1984.
This project aimed to enter children’s universe with simple features such as shadow play, giant puppets and an out of proportion scenery, all of which combine to create a universe from a child’s point of view.
Even though the starting point was the child’s point of view, there was also a critical approach to this universe (society) in which the roles and relationship between child and adults or parents, child and space, child and modern world are more and more questioned and questionable.
These questions were the cornerstone of this opera’s creative reconstruction process. The different creative areas such as set design, puppetry, costumes, lighting, directing, singing and acting were combined in such a way as to offer to the young spectator and adults an elegant and simple presentation. All of this was only made possible by gathering traditional and contemporary techniques and work methods from different countries such as: Brazil, Italy, Austria, a precious meeting.
