Mario G. Cortizo and Marc Rosich have written a piece about a teenage YouTuber who’s getting ready to send her followers a final message before the world comes to an end.

This piece should have premièred at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in the autumn of 2020, but the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic meant that it could only be streamed. It is part of Sis Solos Soles, an Opera de Butxaca i Nova Creació (ÒBNC) project which unites six monodramas for female voice and instrumentalist into a single performance. It was commissioned from six different librettist-composer teams. While exploring the bowels of a theatre, the audience should discover, through a sort of intimate confession, the tales underlying the different voices which are trapped in their respective home environments.

Cortizo’s style differs considerably from that of the rest of the authors, with a basically tonal language and without prejudices when it comes to developing melodic phrases that Tarrats knows how to take advantage of. The percussion accompaniment, magnificently interpreted by its author, is of considerable richness and imagination, flirting with pop elements and grooves that recall the style of a composer like Rosalía.
