Until January 29th you can enjoy the performance of Carme Sansa, awarded with the 2012 Premi Nacional de Teatre.
Almost everyone knows the myth of Orpheus, a man who after losing his wife Eurydice attempted to retrieve her from the underworld, and was allowed to do so with a condition attached: he can’t look at her until both reach the upper world. What would happen, however, if Eurydice chose to refuse this reunion?
This is the new interpretation of Italian playwright Claudio Magris ten years after the death of his own wife, and as a result we have a monologue by the actress Carme Sansa, winner of the 2012 Premi Nacional de Teatre thanks to this role, under the direction of Xavier Albertí.
In “Vostè ja ho entendrà” the story has a change of direction and offers a journey through the character’s biography, from the erotic, poetical and moral perspective, until her tragic death, but also the most known part, the descent to the underworld, which just like it happens in the myth ends badly, but now because of Eurydice’s decision.
Even so, the basis of the work are the events occured after the end of the myth, where Eurydice shows gratitude for the opportunity but prefers to stay in what she calls a house of rest and reflects on her life with the man she loved, who she rather abandons in order to continue being his muse, sacrificing the wife instead.
