Paul Alan Barker Opera for Actors El Gallo in Bogotá

Paul Alan Barker El Gallo an opera for actors without text

With a score by Paul Alan Barker, now available from Composers Edition El Gallo tells the story of the many ups and downs faced by a director-composer and a group of singers who want to stage a play for a vocal ensemble competition in only two weeks.  The time factor, plus the different origins and capacities of the interpreters lead them to convergences and confrontations expressed in a tense atmosphere which pushed to the limits, will untie the most unsuspecting situations in which the most superficial yearnings will reveal together with the deepest and most exotic ones.  A story of the confrontation between wishes and visions, it speaks about how blind we can be to a present loaded with richness and diversity, when moved by the ambition of specific goals.

In Bogotá on 22 November the Mexican Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes, who commissioned it in 2009 and have since performed it over 100 times internationally will perform it at the Teatro Mayor.
