XOGA at the OMNIBUS THEATRE | SHAKESPEAREAN COUPLES
Créditos trailer: Heathcliff Blair
XOGA presents an evening of opera, song and dance based on Shakespearean couples. Ophelia, Hamlet, Romeo, Juliet… Turbulent love stories of jealousy, disappointment, vanity, ambition, chance, fate and madness that with death come to an end.
In the second half of the evening, the story of Gloria and Labarta from the Galician opera “O Arame” (The Tightrope) by Galician composer Juan Durán, and with libretto by Manuel Lourenzo, follows as tragic a path as those by Shakespeare.
Is death an end to the agony, an ultimate proof of love, a punishment or redemption?…
