Together with composer Andreas Pflüger and dramaturg Wolfgang Willaschek, Facundo launched a challenging project : the new opera Romulus der Grosse, based on Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s iconic comedy from 1948. Its world premiere took place at Théâtre du Passage Neuchâtel in December 2015 in a semi-staged production directed by Barbora Horakova, coming to Basel’s Ackermannshof in April 2016 ! (see agenda).
A true crossroads between tradition and innovation, Romulus gathers a great cast, including Alejandro Meerapfel, Anna Wall, Elise Caluwaerts, Rubén Amoretti, Violetta Radomirska and many other singers and actors. The Pro Helvetia Foundation, the Charlotte Kerr-Dürrenmatt Foundation, and the Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel framed this world premiere.
And soon a full production will come to light in Madrid !
