Festival Internacional Cervantino / México

Mauricio Kagel (1931-2008), a composer with a roving ear and unrelenting tragicomic irony, takes us to an unlikely place where a juggling clown starts an investigation that is both zany and chaotic. Comedy and burlesque dramaturgy are featured in the bonsai opera cooked up by Frenchman Pierre Senges (1968) to music by Italian composer Francesco Filidei (1973). Humor is clearly a very serious thing!
