WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

LA Vida Es Sueno (Life is a Dream), by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, directed by René Buch. Segismundo, a prince, is imprisoned after his horoscope revealed that he will bring disaster to the country. After almost a lifetime in prison, Segismundo is released to reign over the country, however, he turns rebellious and committs rape and murder. He is then drugged, re-imprisoned and told that the previous events were a dream, which brings him to question what parts of his life are reality and which are a dream. The play, Calderón's most famous work, is considered an allegory about the human situation and the mystery of life. "Life is a Dream" is sponsored by American Express. "'Life is a dream' has overwhelming power!" -The New York Times. Presented in Spanish with live simultaneous translation via headsets.
