Giorgio BattistelliThe world premiere of an opera by Battistelli, The Fashion, with a libretto in English by Bob Goody, will be performed on 26th January, 2008 at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf (Additional performances on 29th January and 1st, 9th, 12th, 14th, 17th and 23rd February, 2008.) The libretto deals with the glamorous world of fashion: in a five-star hotel a model, Tarquin, fails to appear at the presentation of a new collection created by the Milan designer Maria Maria. He is replaced by Mel, who appears to have been sent by an agency. But in fact Mel is Meli, the chambermaid of the hotel who, after finding the suitcase with the clothes of the new collection, puts them on and with her own charisma captivates the catwalk audience, up until the moment that Tarquin reappears… The musical direction has been entrusted to John Fiore, the production to Michael Simon and the costumes to Steven Galloway.
