MISERO PROSPERO Project is a Spanish-Hungarian dance-theatre company based in Budapest, Hungary lead by the Spanish stage director and playwright Carlos Rodero. In effect from the end of 2007, we show stage productions, including pieces of dance, theatre, music and other disciplines related to show business, with artistic and professional integrity and with a special interest in finding and creating new languages for the stage. Working together with a team of talented collaborators (dancers, actors and actresses, technicians of light and sound, costume designers), we aim at embracing and realizing a new language of performance art and theatrical expression by creating a theatrical dramaturgy that combines drama elements, techniques, and cultural diversity. Our language beautifully navigates on the borders of dance-theater, physical theatre, applied arts, pantomime, and music.

  • Mon vieux Lucien [Edith Piaf]
    Mon vieux Lucien [Edith Piaf] Édith Piaf was born 100 years ago on Saturday, around the same time Einstein made a breakthrough with his theory of general relativity. She arrived at the Hospital Tenon in the 20th arrondissement of Paris on 19 December, though according to her own version of events, she was delivered on the front steps of her home at 72 Rue de Belleville after a horse-drawn ambulance failed to show. If this was fanciful, then France’s most legendary chanteuse didn’t have to embellish the details of the rest of her life, such was the dramatic scope. From growing up in a bordello, to spending four years blinded by keratitis in her infancy, to joining her acrobat father on the road in her teens, to shooting up morphine, cortisone and falling into alcoholism to alleviate a dodgy back sustained in a car crash as an adult (precipitating what she described as her “years of hell”), it certainly wasn’t without event.

  • Requiem aeternam [Benjamin Britten]
    Requiem aeternam [Benjamin Britten] Sinfonia da Requiem, Op. 20, for orchestra is a symphony written by Benjamin Britten in 1940 at the age of 26. It was one of several works commissioned from different composers by the Japanese government to mark the 2,600th anniversary of the founding of the Japanese Empire (taken to be 11 February 660 BCE). The Japanese government rejected the Sinfonia for its use of Latin titles from the Catholic Requiem for its three movements and for its somber overall character, but it was received positively at its world premiere in New York City under John Barbirolli. A performance in Boston under Serge Koussevitzky led to the commission of the opera Peter Grimes from the Koussevitzky Music Foundations. The Sinfonia is Britten's largest purely orchestral work for the concert hall. It was his first major orchestral work that did not include a soloist and, according to musicologist Peter Evans, marks the peak of his early writing in this idiom. Unlike many of Britten's works from this time, it has remained popular and continues to be programmed on orchestral concerts.

  • E penso a te [Mina]
    E penso a te [Mina] E penso a te (And I think of you) is a song composed in 1970 by Lucio Battisti based on the lyrics by Mogol. Initially sung by Bruno Lauzi, it was subsequently re-recorded by numerous other artists. The lyrics recount the nostalgic thoughts of a man about an absent woman, playing on the back-and-forth between the memory of a fruitless date and the thoughts of what she might be doing in this moment. The song and the singer highlight the hesitation of the protagonist in the presence of the woman (the initial piano riff) and the explosion of the feeling of nostalgia in her absence (the crescendo). The emotional effect is amplified by the repetition of the phrase "and I think of you" and by the final chord, with a final diminuendo in which all of the instruments dissolve into silence, leaving only the singer's voice. The lyrics of the song were written in 19 minutes during a drive on the Milano-Como Highway in which Mogol composed the lyrics almost entirely improvising while Lucio Battisti (according to some versions, while he was driving, according to others while he was sitting in the passenger seat) sung the melody line.

  • J'suis snob [Boris Vian]
    J'suis snob [Boris Vian] Boris Vian's humorous satirical song "J'suis snob" (1954) Boris Vian plays a character in one of his faux introspective, self-deprecating, acerbic and facetious satirical moments. There are so many directions you can go in with Boris Vian -- whether the focus is jazz or social commentary -- but this is really cool because it seems to be Vian's critique on shallowness and also a distancing of himself from people who "go to the cinema and watch Swedish films," indulge in "camembert which we eat with a teaspoon," and "spend August in the sack." It's a funny attack on vacuousness, materialistic people, and upper class living. A French take on "malaise and ennui." A number of people have covered the song over the years, including Serge Gainsbourg, Les Charlots, Mouloudji, Monique Tarbès (woman's version), and Les Colocs, a Québécois group which made a good rendition.

  • Death and the Maiden [Franz Schubert]
    Death and the Maiden [Franz Schubert] The String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, by Franz Schubert, is one of the pillars of the chamber music repertoire. Composed in 1824, after the composer suffered through a serious illness and realized that he was dying, it is Schubert's testament to death. The quartet is named for the theme of the second movement, which Schubert took from a song he wrote in 1817 of the same title. The theme of death is palpable in all four movements of the quartet. The quartet was first played in 1826 in a private home, and was not published until 1831, three years after Schubert's death. Yet, passed over in his lifetime, the quartet has become a staple of the quartet repertoire. It is D 810 in Otto Erich Deutsch's thematic catalog of Schubert's works.
