Jovenes Clasicos, winners of Almagroff 2017, come to FeSTeLon 2018 with their production ‘A Secreto Agravio, Secreta Venganza.’, their own interpretation of Calderón de la Barca’s work by the same name. Their work with the play aims to bring this 17th century, little known, honour play to a modern audience.
A Secreto Agravio, Secreta Venganza follows the Inspectors Delgado and Ferrer investigating the appearance of a body in The Port of Lisbon. Following interrogations and revelations all signs point to the Portuguese Nobleman, Don Lope de Almeida, whose wife died in a terrible fire mere days before the appearance of the corpse. Along with the two Inspectors, the audience go on a journey of discovery to find the awful truth behind the terrible crimes guided by a narrator who incorporates the musical genre, Fado, into their telling of the facts and consequences of this tragic story.
