BAC534 / Opera recorded at the Teatro Real de Madrid

World premiere and new production of Teatro Real de Madrid, ‘’El Público’’ is an opera by Mauricio Sotelo. Andrés Ibáñez’ libretto is based on Federico García Lorca’s play ‘’El Público’’.



‘’El Público’’ is Lorca’s most difficult and mysterious play, one of the great classics of modern Spanish theatre. Lorca wrote it in Cuba, just after his trip to New York, at a time of intense experimentation in art and life. Homosexuality is addressed openly in ‘’El Público’’. The play is a cry of defiance against bourgeois hypocrisy and a plea for sexual and artistic freedom. It has been transformed into an opera thanks to Gerard Mortier. He commissionned the composer Mauricio Sotelo to create an opera for the Spanish repertoire of the 21st century.

Pablo-Heras Casado conducts the Klangforum Wien and the Chorus of the Teatro Real.
