The musical opens on the 14th of May and is based on a short text by Austrian playwright Arthur Schnitzler that tells of a love story between two wealthy Wieners who pass themselves off as being poor
Beginning on the 14th of May the Teatre del Raval will host a period musical entitled A la burgesa, based on a short text by Austrian playwright Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) with stage direction by David Pintó and musical direction by Dani Campos.
The production is a hilarious comedy in which two late-19th-century, upper-middle-class Wieners, bored with their privileged surroundings, decide to seek romantic adventure among the city’s poor by dirtying-up their fine clothing and inventing miserable lives for themselves. As luck would have it they meet each other and fall hopelessly in love without either of them suspecting who they really are.
Albert Mora and Laia Prió are the two love-birds and the only two interpreters in a musical theatre production that features Josep Ferre at the piano and Ana Fernandez Pellicer and Laura Martín Canellas on the violin. Through the use of acidic and at times scatological humour, A la burgesa offers a satire on the class struggles of the period, the boredom of the aristocracy, hedonism, love and heartbreak. The production is also noteworthy for the meticulously-created period costumes, the work of Míriam Compte, and a stage design by Jordi Bulbena based on the use of impressionist paintings.
