CONVERGENCE is a universal and contemporary opera (musical piece) whose aim is to be a mirror of the world with all its specificities and similarities. Specificities of every civilizations and similarities of every human being. In this way, it’s an analogy of the summit as well, gathering people in the most representative way possible to write a joint story for the world.
Different people with their own soul revealing itself in colours live separated, forming a beautiful world, but sad. When they meet and mixing their soul, the colours plays in unison. Like a prism in reverse they give birth to a bright white light which radiates the world and makes it sublimely human.
Opera, or at least music and song show however the name it takes, is a common language that we find in every culture. Performed by artists from different origins and mixing different artistic styles, CONVERGENCE talks about who we are, what we do and where we go, it’s a portrait of the world like the summit is.
