Brazil-Italy - Antonio Carlos Gomes

Antonio Carlos Gomes: composer of two worlds gathers together documents produced by the composer, which have never been presented complete, shading light on his life and work. Carlos Gomes created works, mainly in the operatic field,  starting with the world première of his third opera – Il Guarany – at the Teatro alla Scala – in Milan on March 18, 1870. From then onwards, he searched for originality in music which, until then, was still dependent and influenced by Italian opera. This documentation is a source for study of music of the second half of the XIX Century.
