"Viaggio Interiore" is a mini chamber opera piece that represents the invisible theater of a daring and puzzling
journey into oneself. It is filled with the whimsical curiosity and abundant absurdity that one may go through in ones
head. Juxtaposing harmony and chaos, it deals with an old philosophical question of what is dream and what is reality?
In the end the dilemma seems to be resolved, yet by the question mark, leaving the answer to eternity. The sonic
tapestry of its virtual musical space invites the audience “to experience” the struggle between the word and meaning,
the visible and invisible, the imagined world or reality.
