Raquel García Tomás
Composer specialising in interdisciplinary creation with a doctorate from the Royal College of Music in London. In 2020 she was awarded the Spanish National Music Award “for the interdisciplinary, innovative and daring character of a singular and unique compositional language”. The première of Alexina B. at the Gran Teatre del Liceu is her most significant project this season. This opera (winner of the BBVA Foundation’s Leonardo Scholarship) was created with librettist Irène Gayraud and stage director Marta Pazos.
“Interaction between dramaturgy, musical composition and theatrical creation during the creative process. “Alexina B.”, an example of interdisciplinary creation in the field of opera.”
Using the opera “Alexina B.” as an example, this session will explore various creative strategies that promote the interaction between dramaturgy, musical composition and theatrical creation. We will reflect on how an adaptive strategy, which makes the creative process more flexible, can be key to achieving a coherent result in terms of the multiple layers of reading and the various disciplines the work is made up of.
