Lucas Peire and Cristina Cordero imagine a mature singer, voracious for beauty, depends on the joys that a sad refrigerator offers her. Among her delusions, she dreams that the next day she will perform a great concert at the city’s opera house, where her parents will finally be able to see her. As an anticipation of the dress rehearsal with the orchestra, a cellist arrives at her house, who in addition to seconding her in her fantasies, accompanies her in singing. As a final delirium, she remembers the advice of her favorite music director: to offer beauty, one must devour beauty… And so, without hesitation, she decides to devour the cellist… instrument and all.

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.

Voraç bellesa by Lucas Peire enters the territory of macabre farce through the re-elaboration of different celebrated operatic fragments in order to present the case of an opera singer, sung by Marta Fiol, who engages in dialogue with her fridge and eventually, ravenous for beauty, decides to devour the cellist accompanying her, Àlex Rodríguez-Flaqué.
