About

This is the second creative project bringing together conductor Teodor Currentzis and director Peter Sellars (the first being the operatic double-bill of Iolanta and Perséphone staged in Madrid in 2012).

The action is set in Central America. Spanish colonialists are at war with the native Mayan people. The scenery recreates the symbolic and colourful decoration of the Mayan tribes and the Zapatista Army - a modern national liberation movement in Mexico.

The music is performed by an international ensemble of soloists, with the choir and orchestra of MusicAeterna.
