ALEKSANDER LEGEN: GLOBAL WORMING OF THE BRAIN
Elektro Ljubljana's Old Power Station
An independent art project by a young painter and designer at the 100th anniversary of the WW1 demonstrates a
futuristic concept that applies a critical perspective to various levels of the present-day society, which represents the final
component of the degenerated human history and its absurdity. What happens when different art genres (painting,
sculpture, costume design, philosophy, interior, design and the written word) collide in the moment that hasn’t
happened yet.

G. Rossini: The Barber of Sevilla - opera
With La Traviata (1853) Giuseppe Verdi managed to successfully create one of his most enduring works.
In the drama The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas, fils, Verdi and librettist Francesco Maria
Piave recognised a timeless theme, extremely attractive for setting to music in an opera. With the
selection of a theme concerning a goodhearted courtier, Verdi stepped on the toes of the middle class,
whose expectation of opera was a reinforcement of their false morality.
With its heartbreaking and uniform drama Rigoletto outperforms the other pieces from Verdi's
middle creative period. In his collection of works this opera announced a period, in which the
composer's works were marked by greater musical consistency and stronger individual character.
Rossini's Barber has proven to be one of the greatest masterpieces of comedy within music, and
has been described as the opera buffa of all "opere buffe". Even after two hundred years, its popularity
on the modern opera stage attests to that greatness.

Panza. Other characters evoking the atmosphere of Spain include Mercedes, Espada, the Marquis de
Gamache, Kitri\'s girlfriends, Basil\'s two friends, toreadors, gypsies and several others.
