Exiled from a country immersed in civil war, two clowns find themselves in the heart of the Parisian underworld at a time of revolution.

Black, el Payaso / Black, the Clown is one of Pablo Sorozábal‘s most ambitious and wide-ranging work. An ingenious allegory of art and nationalist politics, its sharp and political edge that remains relevant today. The libretto is based on the French novel La princesse aux clowns by Jean-José Frappa.

This Spanish operetta / zarzuela first premiered in Spain in 1942. This Cervantes Theatre production directed by Paula Paz marks its UK premiere.

Dos payasos en el exilio procedentes de un país inmerso en una guerra civil se hallan en el corazón de los bajos fondos parisinos en tiempos de revolución.

Black, el Payaso es uno de los trabajos más ambiciosos y de más amplio alcance de Pablo Sorozábal. Es una alegoría ingeniosa del arte y de la política nacionalista, de una agudeza política que sigue estando vigente hoy en día. El libreto se inspira en la novela francesa La princesse aux clowns de Jean-José Frappa.

Esta opereta / zarzuela se estrenó en España en 1942 y ahora se estrena en el Reino Unido con esta novedosa producción del Cervantes Theatre dirigida por Paula Paz.
