From 8 to 17 April, the Teatro Circo Price presents an updated version of the classic The Aeneid, by the Roman poet Virgil, directed by José Luis Arellano García.
A poor settlement on the fringes of a Mediterranean city has just been destroyed by a group of invaders shouting “We don’t want you here, get out! A young man flees from the flames. If that neighbourhood were called Troy and that boy, Aeneas; he would have to look for his place in the world with the promise of a possible future. Aeneas is not going to stop and is willing to leave everything behind: his home, the sea, love, friends, everything. “Is this to be a hero?” he asks himself. Virgil used the Greek past to tell the present of his Rome. In this version of the classic, he converses with the Latin poet to tell the story of the present of this complex and diffuse Europe; proud and exclusive, at times; generous, radicalised? The XII cantos of The Aeneid are here a playlist with 12 great tracks: music for a thrashing, sensual rhythms for…, sad songs, perreo, karaoke. Tickets at this link.
