SASHA WALTZ PRODUCTION

The baroque returns to the Colón’s lyrical season with one of its most successful referents. With Dido & Eneas Purcell lays the foundations for the English opera, seeking inspiration in one of the most fascinating stories of the antiquity. The masterful vision of Sasha Waltz extracts from the score all its topicality and its theatrical and dance dimension, turning it into a performance worthy of the 21st century.
