Um dos mais cultuados filmes do diretor sueco Ingmar Bergman foi transformado em ópera pelas mãos de um brasileiro. Nesta terça-feira (28), o compositor João MacDowell apresenta na Suécia a adaptação musical do icônico “O Sétimo Selo” (1957), que terá sua estreia mundial como parte das comemorações do centenário de nascimento de Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007).

A ópera “O Sétimo Selo” canta a alegoria medieval de Bergman, em que um cavaleiro, que retorna das Cruzadas para uma Suécia devastada pela peste negra, enfrenta a Morte em um jogo de xadrez.

“Penso que “O Sétimo Selo” é talvez o texto mais importante do século XX. Eu o coloco lado a lado com Shakespeare. Trata-se de um texto riquíssimo, de grande poesia, e é realmente um privilégio estar trabalhando com esse material”, disse à RFI o compositor brasileiro João MacDowell, nascido em Brasília e radicado em Nova York desde 2002.

A obra foi composta por MacDowell por sugestão da Fundação Bergman, durante um período de residência artística do brasileiro na casa do cineasta sueco, na ilha de Fårö – onde Ingmar Bergman viveu e trabalhou durante 40 anos, até à sua morte. No total, Bergman rodou cinco longas de ficção e dois documentários na ilha.

“Passei dois verões na casa de Bergman, na ilha de Fårö. Isso foi muito importante, porque, por um lado, houve uma experiência espiritual, de ser abraçado por um artista que tinha sido muito importante para mim. Também pude vivenciar um ambiente muito produtivo, trabalhando com os arquivos do Bergman. Eu não teria chegado nesta ópera se não tivesse tido aquela oportunidade”, observa o compositor.

Cantada em sueco, a ópera terá duas apresentações no Museu de Arte Moderna (Moderna Museet) de Estocolmo.

Adaptar Bergman na Suécia, para os suecos

“É realmente um desafio e uma grande responsabilidade fazer Bergman na Suécia, para suecos”, diz MacDowell. “Tenho uma sorte muito grande de ter sido escolhido para fazer este projeto, e para ter uma residência na casa de Bergman. Eu sempre soube que, embora meu sueco, por mais que eu aprendesse, nunca seria perfeito ao ponto de poder entender todos os detalhes da língua para escrever uma ópera, aqui eu teria a certeza de encontrar colaboradores, como os cantores com quem estamos trabalhando, que foram extremamente importantes para lapidar esta partitura.”

Sob regência de João MacDowell e direção artística do sueco Bengt Gomér, a ópera reúne sete solistas e um coro de dezesseis vozes, além de cinco instrumentistas. A montagem é uma co-produção entre a International Brazilian Opera Company, fundada por MacDowell em 2014, e a Associação Cultural Suécia-Brasil (Föreningen för svensk och brasiliansk kultur – FSBK).

Espetáculo viaja a São Paulo

Esta será a estreia mundial da partitura vocal da ópera, em formato de câmara. A apresentação da versão completa da ópera, com orquestra e grande coro, será realizada em São Paulo, em novembro.

Segundo a produtora Clarice Goulart, da Associação Cultural Suécia-Brasil, serão três concertos no Conservatório de Tatuí e no Centro Cultural Baía dos Vermelhos, em Ilhabela.

“O fato de o Brasil ser o país que mais licencia as obras de Ingmar Bergman ainda hoje, e sendo o “Sétimo Selo” o filme icônico que ele é, imensamente atual mesmo depois de mais de 60 anos desde o seu lançamento, faz dessa ópera entre as poucas de cunho internacional cantadas em sueco e a primeira em sueco composta por um brasileiro, um patrimônio cultural imensurável não somente para o Brasil e a Suécia, mas sim mundial”, diz a produtora cultural.

O próximo estágio do desenvolvimento da obra de João MacDowell será a incorporação à ópera “O Sétimo Selo” de elementos de encenação, com roupas, figurinos e cenários.

    I have come across that today, more and more people are attracted to cams and the area of digital photography. However, really being a photographer, you will need to first shell out so much time deciding the model of video camera to buy as well as moving out of store to store just so you can buy the most economical camera of the brand you have decided to pick out. But it does not end just there. You also have to take into consideration whether you can purchase a digital video camera extended warranty. Thanks for the good ideas I acquired from your blog.

  27. Angela Hudson says:

    Thanks for this excellent article. Also a thing is that many digital cameras come equipped with a zoom lens that allows more or less of your scene for being included by means of ‘zooming’ in and out. All these changes in the aim length usually are reflected inside the viewfinder and on big display screen on the back of your camera.

    Another thing I have really noticed is for many people, bad credit is the result of circumstances further than their control. Such as they may be really saddled by having an illness so that they have higher bills going to collections. It may be due to a employment loss or maybe the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce or separation can really send the funds in the wrong direction. Thank you for sharing your thinking on this site.
