A contemporary history with roots in the popular world and in Baroque Sicily. A love triangle on which dominates an imposing female figure, sort of great mother and "Acabadora", who guides the destinies of life, love and death. A poetic lyric libretto that takes its cue from ancient folk "strambotti" and octaves. And shadows theatre that tells the now dark, now dreamlike world that holds the mechanism of the opera.
