WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes presents Monsters and Prodigies: The History of the Castrati. Claudio Valdés is causing a worldwide sensation with his award winning theater/opera about the castrati - boys castrated before puberty to preserve the soprano range of their voices, an 18th century practice that propelled many boys from poverty to stardom. Through brilliant musical performances and extreme physical comedy, Monsters and Prodigies offers a humorous and sophisticated satire of Baroque opera and a century of music ruled by the castrati. Performed in Spanish with English supertitles
