El bon auguri

Simfonies de ciutat Spain 13 min World premiere

Synopsis

A stone rests in a dry and abandoned place, on the outskirts of Barcelona, in the middle of a mountain that is no longer a mountain. Thousands of years ago it was a place to leave offerings. Sacrifices were made to ask for good omens. The stone remembers the last shepherd in the area, the only one who visited it, before disappearing with his sheep. In an eternal summer, suddenly, a visitor bursts into the stone’s existence.
