Premiere in Spain

Brussels, La Monnaie Opera House. Three actors working there meet three people near the end of their lives, and together they go backstage of the great Belgian Opera House on a journey through its most secret corners. They rehearse a play that we will never see. Three portraits on the threshold of death, without the need to step onto the   main stage, tell of the tragedy of the body and the transfiguration by art.
