Love has no borders

Which journey is more complete than love? This feeling, which has filled pages and melodies since the beginning of time, remains an enigma for humans despite the number of romantic clichés we’ve been generating throughout history. Whoever laughs at love ends up falling into their nets… and no one gets the way! And if any genre has deeply explored the complexities of love this has been music, with its ability to convey the language of the soul. The mezzo-soprano Marina Viotti is presented for the first time in recital in Barcelona with this particular and careful proposal that naturally mixes opera, Lied and the song understood as pop. An exquisite program that takes us by the hand for the state of love and that is accompanied by a small band of saxophone, double bass and piano. A personal proposal by Viotti, which takes all musical styles equally seriously to mix them, give them a new meaning and try to explain to us like this, over and over again and personally, what love is. A love that, like music, doesn’t understand borders.
