Antonio Montaño and Tomás Muñoz Fantochines, a chamber opera by Conrado del Campo 1:00:24MARCH 14, 2015The chamber opera Fantochines features an original splitting of the characters, which are presented in both their human form and as puppets. Tomás Borrás’s stage play, which Conrado del Campo set to music in 1923, was the reason behind the success of this chamber opera, which was performed in various Spanish cities, as well as in Portugal, Argentina and Belgium. The score’s disappearance after World War II cut short its brilliant track record. However, the new edition of the score has allowed this unique piece of chamber music theatre to be recovered.
Fantochines, estrenada en 1923, es una ópera de cámara con marionetas que remite a las mascaradas venecianas y a la estética dieciochesca, insertándose en el espíritu neoclásico del que participan otras obras de la época.
