Theater Basel | Lucio Silla

The first premiere this year is Mozarts opera Lucio Silla, written by him at the age of only 16 years old. The story is about the dictator Silla who is obsessed with Giunia, the daughter of his murdered opponent. Giunia feels nothing but hate and disgust for him, not only because he has murdered her father, but also because he has damned her fiancé Cecilio to exile.
Together with Cinna, Cecilios friend, they plan to murder Sillo and end his dictatorship to free the people of Rome and make it possible for Giunia and Cecilio to finally be together.
The music was absolutely wonderful and was captivating from the first minute, the orchestra was fantastic and the singers brilliant.
Not only the solo singers were amazing but also the choir was very powerful and had an incredibly strong presence on stage.
Lucio Silla is a story about love, hate, tyranny and power and the involvements between the different characters keep the story exciting until the last scene.

LUSH | mask of magnaminty

The LUSH mask of magnaminty is a multi-purpose mask that can be used for the body and for the face. It contains many very effective natural ingredients like honey, kaolin, peppermint oil and Organic Ground Aduki Beans. The mask has a slight peeling effect when you wash it away and if you want to use it on your body it is best to use it before taking a shower.
The honey has an antibacterial effect and the peppermint oil stimulates the skin, making it look radiant and refreshed.
We like the texture of the mask of magnaminty, it feels cool and refreshing on the skin and the exfoliating effect while washing it away revitalizes the skin.
The skin feels refreshed, purified and soft after using the mask and we like the fresh scent a lot.
Our LUSH mask of magnaminty is self preserving.
