Up until the 17th of May the Teatre Lliure in Montjuïc is hosting Frank V (opereta d’una banca privada) (operetta of a private bank). The musical, starring Eduard Farelo and Mónica López, is a trenchant comedy about banking and capitalism in rock-opera version. As though he were a Shakespearean king, Frank V is heir to a banking institution that his family has run for generations. He and his wife, Ottilie, believe they have no shortage of reasons that justify their committing all kinds of atrocities.
Humour, ill-humour and music are the principal elements of a production directed by Josep Maria Mestres and which Sergi Belbel and Arnau Tordera, the singer of Obeses, have adapted from an original text that Swiss dramatist Friedrich Dürrenmatt wrote in 1959; a text that, while it speaks of our recent past, still retains its relevance today. The remaining members of Obeses provide the music.
In addition to Eduard Farelo and Mónica López, Frank V... also stars Laura Aubert, Enric Arquimbau, David Verdaguer and Ferran Rañé, among others. On the 26th of April the actors and company will offer a chat with the audience following the function.
