Stage director Lluís Danés brings Puccini’s music with a wholly different perspective.
After the presentation of La Torre de Nadal (The Christmas Tower) in Plaça Catalunya, La Torre dels Somnis (The Tower of Dreams) is coming to the Liceu, bringing Puccini’s music to the Liceu with a wholly different perspective.
This new production is a proposal midway between opera and circus, in which we (re)visit the arias and infinite melodies written by Puccini. The show bears the stamp of stage director Lluís Danés and the musical direction of Sergi Cuenca, who also wrote the musical revision based on Puccini's work.
The plot tells us how the inhabitants of The Tower of Dreams must defend and protect their dreams and utopias in order to save their status quo.
The circus part will feature traditional circus acts: balancing feats, tightrope walkers, flying trapeze, hair hanging and dance.
