La Verità US Premiere - Field Trip
The first in a series of field trips for students and families hosted by Lotus Creations Academy to expand their artistic horizons, enrich their understanding of performance, and awaken their stage presence. This field trip will take us to the BAM Opera House on May 6th for the US premiere of La Verità. Field trips are optional. Family members are encouraged to accompany students should they so wish.
La Verità delights through performances tinged with sheer beauty and offbeat humour. Like a daydream… mesmerizingly beautiful.

In this acrobatic homage to Salvador Dalí, Swiss contemporary circus maverick Daniele Finzi Pasca (Donka: A Letter to Chekhov, 2012 Next Wave) conjures a lush vaudevillian dreamscape where rhinos juggle, corks fall like rain, and the eccentric surrealist appears as a wayward aquanaut, stumbling upstage while an aerial artist tumbles into the sky. This sensuous feast of feats unfolds before an original hand-painted backdrop by Dalí himself, a macabre rendering of Tristan and Isolde produced for a 1944 Metropolitan Opera ballet production. Movement, images, and ideas warp and linger like the haunting figures on the canvas, in a ravishing showcase of virtuosity, humor, and theatricality.
