More About This Book

Overview

Un dandy italiano irascible lanza su piano desde su balcón. Un pintor novohispano bebe un elíxir que le permite ver el futuro. Una famosa videoasta siria desaparece súbitamente por las calles de Jerusalén. En 1977 un cura en Sevilla descubre, debajo de un armario, un manuscrito que resulta ser la primera ópera escrita en las Américas. Un compositor negro norteamericano escribe una obra en los años cincuenta que presagia la decadencia del imperio norteamericano. Siguiendo el dictado de Hermes Trismegisto, Giordano Bruno escribe su obra maestra sabiendo que ésta lo conducirá a la hoguera. La vida de un soldado israelí termina en las manos de una niña palestina. Una mujer de la aristocracia de la nueva inglaterra decide morir enterrada en vida antes de descender de clase.

Las Brujas de Tepoztlán (y otras óperas inéditas) presenta los casos de cuatro óperas disímiles y oscuras, escritas por compositores igualmente oscuros cuya ficción o realidad nunca es completamente confirmada por el autor. Al entrelazar estas cuatro historias a manera de una fuga narrativa, este libro invita al lector a reflexionar acerca de la gestación de la "obra maestra", la mitificación de la figura del artista antihéroe, y la relación entre una obra, su autor y sus intérpretes.

Pablo Helguera (ciudad de México, 1971) es un artista visual. Su obra, que incorpora escritura y performance, varía desde hacer registros fonográficos de lenguas en vías de extinción hasta cruzar manejando por el continente americano en búsqueda del panamericanismo. Es autor del ensayo Endingness (2005) y del Manual de Estilo del Arte Contemporáneo (2005), un libro de etiqueta social para el mundo del arte.
