„The land of smiles” by Franz Lehar is a very complex operetta: the music is very rich in sonorities, very dramatic when the conflict appears on the stage or when a character is suffering and very suggestive when recreating the cultural influence of the Asian continent, through musical motifs.
These musical aspects have grown in me the interest and the desire to put in stage this operetta. I find it very challenging to recreate a ceremony of a culture not so familiar to our or to set some behavioral trajetory for a character who is such typical for an asian society (Sou-Chong).
