Spectacular show set within giant skull 

A stunning show which marks the centenary of its creation takes to the stage of the Auditorium of Tenerife in Santa Cruz on May 4th.

“El Amor Brujo” was originally commissioned in 1914 by Manuel de Falla for a chamber group, then rescored as a symphonic suite and eventually as a ballet. The music contains moments of remarkable beauty and originality as the tale unfolds about a gypsy bride who is haunted by her first husband as she tries to start a new life with her first love.

The May 4th show is entitled “El Amor Brujo 1915. Una mirada desde el Siglo XXI de Néstor a Pepe Dámaso” and includes a new first half but a second part dedicated to the original. It has never been seen before and will feature musical direction by Isabel Costes, scenery and costumes by Pepe Dámaso and stage direction by Nacho Cabrera.

The 1915 version of the production featured a skull in the left-hand corner of the set. For this new show, the skull becomes more than eight metres high and allows the action to take place within its eye sockets and base.

Falla was originally limited to just 15 musicians because of the space available in the theatre pit but on May 4th, the beautiful sounds will be recreated by the Atlantic Orchestra under the baton of Isabel Costes who is also the musical and artistic director of this spectacular.
