The ancient books of chivalry – abridged and updated in Orlando Furioso by Ariosto or Jerusalén liberada by Tasso -  were a fundamental source of dramatic material during the period of Baroque opera. The ingenious staged madrigal, Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda by Monteverdi, based on Tasso, is at the same time, the starting point for Diàlegs de Tirant i Carmesina, a chamber opera by Joan Magrané and dramaturgist Marc Rosich  that is woven around Tirant lo Blanc, a masterpiece in Valencian literature.

Framed as a battle of love, and death, inspired by Joanot Martorell’s timeless chivalric novel, these dialogues are a continuous, amorous, and romantic coming and going between Carmensina and Tirant, a game of variations on themes of love and heartbreak, between desire and convention, taken from an ironic perspective. As a counterpoint, there are two antagonistic feminine characters: on the positive side, the mediation of Plaerdemavida;  and on the negative, the scheming betrayals of the Viuda Reposada. At the same time, artist Jaume Plensa transforms the space into a luminous installation of neon, which, like a metronome, beats the inexorable passing of time exemplified by romantic zeal.
