Festival Opera Tigre
The Festival Opera Tigre on the island Kaiola Blue (Buenos Aires) is an international project of Michał Znaniecki. The Festival aims to extend to several countries around the River Paraná – Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina- with a significant emphasis and references to Polish culture. The Festival will offer theatre and opera performances using the natural area of the island and the aquatic environment of the Paraná River. Audiences will be able to enjoy both small scale performances and concerts as well as open air opera mega-productions.
Festival Opera Tiger becomes part of the group of important festivals in which the water is an essential framework. Renowned international singers from around the world have already announced their intention to participate in the upcoming productions of The Fairy Queen and The Tempest staged on the water. Theatre and music workshops will complete and support the activities of the Festival, aimed at an international spectrum of young artists.
The first edition 2013 which announced the creation of the Festival took place on a single and intense day structured around a great number of small scale performances, concerts, workshops and plays where Witold Gombrowicz became a kind of leitmotif of the event. Singers and actors as Gabo Ferro, Marilu Marini, Nacho Gadano, María Bayo, Daniela Taberning took part of that opening day accompanied by great musicians like Rubén Fernández Aguirre or Ensemble Tropi among other great artists – friends of the FOT.
