At its core, “The Opera Locos” is a jubilant celebration of the operatic art form, infused with a generous dose of humor and irreverence. Leading the charge are the illustrious members of the cast, including the esteemed Enrique Sánchez-Ramos, whose portrayal of the world-weary tenor Alfredo captivates audiences with its depth and charm. Alongside him, the vivacious Mayca Teba embodies the fiery mezzo-soprano Carmen, while Michaël Koné brings infectious energy to the role of the pop-loving counter-tenor Franelli. Rounding out the ensemble are Jesús Álvarez as the macho baritone Enrique and María Rey-Joly as the endearingly naive soprano Maria, each contributing their own unique talents to the eclectic mix.

What truly sets “The Opera Locos” apart is its innovative approach to storytelling, weaving together beloved opera classics with chart-topping hits from the worlds of rock and pop. From the stirring melodies of Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte” to the timeless ballads of Whitney Houston, the musical tapestry created by Yllana is as diverse as it is enchanting, ensuring there’s something for every palate.

But it’s not just the music that dazzles in this production; it’s the engaging rapport between the artists and the audience that truly elevates the experience.

And let’s not forget the invaluable contribution of lighting designer Pedro Pablo Melendo, whose evocative creations add depth and atmosphere to every scene.
