The Banda Sinfónica Complutense (Complutense Symphonic Band) and the theatre company Maru-Jasp propose one more time an interdisciplinary show in which music and theatre come together. Through the works of Andrés Valero, Sylvester Levay, Giuseppe Verdi and Georges Bizet, the story of three women and three different ways of understanding love in Romanticism is told.
Maruja, a rebellious student, a "lady without hat", is about to begin an initiation journey that will take her from the poets of the generation of 1927 to the European cultural heart of the 1920s. This is a journey that begins with an encounter with Maria de Maeztu that makes her dream of the great opera nights of Romanticism. On this vital journey, she relives the story of three very different women, of three heroines who in different periods have taught us to live and be passionate: Isabel de Baviera, the princess who became Sissi Empress; Aida, the Ethiopian princess of Verdi's opera and Carmen from Ronda, the protagonist of Mérimée's story.
Poetry, drama, music... A look at romantic relationships and their complexities seen through the eye of History.
