What can Cassandra’s visionary myth tell us today about how should we face the future? Who could that Cassandra be today? She predicted the victory of the enemy and, as punishment, was despised and raped. What would happen if we placed Cassandra in our society of knowledge, running a bazaar of second-hand objects in a Berlin neighborhood?

Press Quotes:

The music by the Spanish composer Enric Palomar is entertaining and exciting. Soft and playful melody lines are followed by sharp-edged accents…
The Daily Mirror. 9.10.2014. Neuköllner Oper Berlin

Enric Palomar’s music is imaginative and powerful… in terms of artistic quality, in their language, precioso – magnificent!
… One leaves this opera moved, and the applause did not want to end when it was performed. Excellently done. ND
