About the Event

Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Seville's breathtaking Teatro de la Maestranza for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of opera.

At first glance, it looks like a string of Spanish customs, stereotypes and clichés, strung together with gypsies, blacksmiths, pocket knives, jealousy and death. But the story of this rural drama by Carlos Fernández Shaw, which Manuel de Falla premiered in Nice in 1913, gives rise to an opera that is not only dramatically intense, especially because of its striking brevity, but also musically intoxicating.
