The acclaimed Catalan theatrical group La Fura dels Baus, founded in Barcelona in 1979, returns to the Slovenian capital. This time Carlus Padrissa, one of the group’s six artistic directors, who opened last year’s 65th Ljubljana Festival with a spectacular staging of Carl Orff’s scenic cantata Carmina Burana, pays artistic homage to Magellan’s 1519 expedition around the world. Sfera Mundi – Voyage Around the World, with a staging created for Congress Square venue, tells the story of one of the first and greatest voyages of discovery in the history of humankind. An expedition of five ships led by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan completed the first circumnavigation of the globe, thus proving that the Earth is round. Padrissa compares the importance of Magellan’s expedition to the first Moon landing, when astronauts photographed the Earth from space. The show is planned to tour for a number of years after the world premiere in Congress Square. Many brilliant dancers will perform along with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of conductor Josep Vicent.
