TWO FAIRIES AND A JAR OF SUMMER LIGHTS is an electroacoustic piece intended for children composed after an original Fairytale by Monica Miuccio.
A winter Fairy (the Holly Fairy) oversleeps and wakes up in high summer: “Once upon a time, a holly fairy woke up knocking her head against a strawberry…”
The Holly Fairy now has to find the way to reach the cold winter and her journey through the dark is helped by a summer Fairy (the Lily Fairy) and a shining swarm of Fireflies ...
“The Lily fairy, a foxglove as a hat, gathers all the fireflies she knows in a jar. Perhaps once belonged to a human being…” and humans indeed invade the forest and scare the Holly Fairy. But the magical realm is so far from men’s material world that it remains invisible to the human blind eye “…dazzled by their artificial lights, blind to the fragments of Summer in the Winter heart”
Finally “The fireflies dance all over the snowed firs, joyful silence of little stars”
“Then, they walk away. She paints her berries red”
The last sentence stands as a monition to the audiences and concludes the journey: “Good –sighs the Holly fairy- I always get confused when giving explanations to those who have not the imagination to understand.”
