“Banquete Feroz” (“Ferocious Banquet”)
People everywhere, despite the world’s enormous technological progress, have been left without food. A family of actors tries to survive in its own way, in a cannibalistic, increasingly cruel atmosphere, never losing hope for a new beginning.
(Libretto in Hebrew and English, for the opera with the same title, with music by Raymond Goldstein, inspired on a short story by Bernard Malamud.)
This is the startling story of a Jewish bird, who seeks refuge in the home of a Jewish family. Not really intending to, he influences their daily rutine, provoking unvoluntary confrontations which endanger his life. This seems to be a comedy, but then again it might not necessarily be so.
