Clara Ingese was twenty when she discovered the multi-facetted personality of Ophelia who breathes a special energy into her desire to sing. Today she imagines through an album, from the 19th musical century, a journey between worlds, questioning Ophelia's madness within the torments and interrogations of our time. Thus was born the last piece, Chant d'exil, commissioned from Francois Emmanuel (for the text) and Benoit Mernier (for the music). This poetic allegory reflects the fluid gap between the boundaries and sings of the tragedy of an errant Ophelia, as though addressing the memory of our deceased human siblings who drowned on the path of exile. Belgian-Italian soprano Slara Inglese has performed on stages all across Europe. She is especially involved in theater and contemporary creations.
