Siembra, Latino Theatre Season: Los Bufones

7:30 pm—Friday and Saturday
2 pm—Sunday

A world premiere based on Velázquez’ mesmerizing paintings of jesters and dwarfs at the court of Philip IV of Spain, Los Bufones brings to life these fascinating individuals—comedians and outcasts, confidantes and spies—in a richly melodic new theatre piece, sung in Spanish with English supertitles.

For the King’s Bufones, who are both adored and hated in the world of the court, each day is a striving for balance in a web of intrigues and ambitions. In musical solos and ensembles, they reveal their personal lives as intimates of the royal family, as well as their privileged perspective on the crumbling order, splendor, and decadence of mid-seventeenth century Spain at the end of its Golden Era.

Featuring Ingela Onstad, soprano; Christina Martos, soprano; Sam Shepperson, tenor; André García-Nuthmann, tenor; Michael Hix, baritone; and Carlos Archuleta, baritone. Get the full cast list HERE.

Conductor, Kristin Ditlow; violin, Megan Holland; cello, Joel Becktell; piano, Debra Ayers.

Versión en español de María Cristina López
Stage direction by Jean Moss
