"The title – which means “Swan song” – comes from a Lied by Schubert that, sung along with others, composes this evening of songs. We are together, once again, in the untimely cavern of the pit of a theatre, listening to Schubert. Everything flows along, simple and literal, apparently without any conflict. But while I am sitting in the dark listening, a question comes to mind: how is it that this woman who is singing has lived that which I have never lived; and yet, – yes – I am sure that I have, at some time. How can she know my intimate thoughts more deeply than I myself? What is the origin of her song, that touches my own origin so profoundly? And what is the origin of these tears of mine, now, that have no content and are diametrically opposed to any kind of sentimentalism – that I hate ?" - Romeo Castellucci
