Juan José

Popular lyric drama in three acts

Approximate duration: 1 hour and 50 minutes (without interval)

Popular lyric drama in three acts by Pablo Sorozábal, based on the work of Joaquín Dicenta
Music by PABLO SOROZÁBAL
World premiere of the stage version
New production of the Teatro de la Zarzuela

Sorozábal called Juan José a popular lyrical drama, explaining that "popular" meant proletarian, not folkloric. It was first heard in 2009 in San Sebastian, Spain as a concert version. It is only now, 48 years after it was composed in 1968, that the opera has its première on the stage.
The story takes place in a slum area of Madrid, one of taverns and social outcasts which had appeared three decades earlier in Sorozábal's Adiós a la bohemia. In this production, stage director José Carlos Plaza immerses us in a world of misery and illiteracy.
