The Bird of Two Colors by Conrado del Campo

Juan March Fundation - Madrid (Spain)

Premier, January 6th 2020

Chamber opera by Conrado del Campo (1878-1953) libretto by Tomás Borrás (1891-1976)

The "country of allegories" is the place where happen the action of "The Bird of Two Colors" (1951), in its absolute premiere, with partial orchestration by Miquel Ortega.

In an imaginary territory - jungle mix, circus and American bar - three characters of marked symbolic character meet. There Don Tigre, a martial knight who pursues idealized love, tries to free the Bird. The Monkey, in his demiurge role, will resist letting the bird (sings by a soprano) escape and eventually transforming her into a modern and earthly woman. Despite all the impediments, love will end up triumphing in its own way.
