This year’s performance is a coproduction with AGON Acustica Informatica Musica,  center of production and research, based in Milan. It started its activity in 1990 and it is characterized by using digital  technology in musical and artistic production.
This new production tells the story of Hildegard von Bingen, a fascinating religious figure of the Middle Age who was also writer, musician, composer, philosopher, healer, naturalist and much more. It is a tale told in electronic music played by a solo flute. The original music has been commissioned by the Catania born composer Francesco Maria Paradiso, texts are by music critic Guido Barbieri.
