Finally, we will have the chance to assist to the production of Pepita Jiménez, in Madrid, that was released on October of 2012 in the Teatro Argentino de la Plata. On the one hand, this production is the result of a collaboration between the Teatros del Canal and the Teatro Argentino de la Plata, and on the other hand, it represents the crystallizing of the collaboration with Tritó, which keeps giving fruitful results.
The plot of the work, based on a novel by Juan Valera, has been adapted by Francis Money-Coutts and turned into music by Isaac Albéniz. The first release of this piece was placed in 1895, and until now it has remained out of the stages. The new publication of the critical edition completed by Borja Mariño, made this production -staged by Calixto Bieito- possible to perform.
Pepita Jiménez will be presented in four exclusive functions on the stage of the Sala Roja, during the days 19th, 21st, 23rd and 25th of May.
