an animated opera
Psychomachia is a mesmerizing story on the experience of being alive.
It tells the tale of the Vices and the Virtues of today as a way to look at ourselves with a cynical eye and an inch of celebrative sarcasm.
By investigating and giving to Vices and Virtues a contemporary expression, we are renewing and thus maintaining a cultural heritage common to us all.
Animation and opera, each have a certain expression and language; we believe that the corky animation and pompous operatic scenes will be the perfect form to support this eccentric caricature of present days, while attracting veterans and new viewers of opera and film genre.
