05 – 09 June 2017

The University of Concepción Cultural Corporation and the Concepción Symphony Orchestra present the 2017 Educational Season with the staging of “Prima Donna”, a theater play with music from the Romantic period, intended for educational institutions. Performances will be from Monday 5 to Friday 9 June at 09:30 and 11:30 in the UdeC Theater.

There will be an additional performance, open to all audiences, on Friday 09 at 19:00 in the UdeC Theater.

“Prima Donna” tells the funny story about two young women who get lost and find a gloomy and forgotten mansion inhabited by a bizarre Count and his special servant. The arrival of the young ladies will spark the Counts ambition; however, good sentiments will appear unexpectedly, turning this story into a joyful ode to true love.

In “Prima Donna”, the Concepción Symphony Orchestra will offer a musical journey through the Romantic period, with pieces by composers such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Gioachino Rossini, Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. This play was created by René Ulloa, a member of our orchestra. Stage direction is by Gonzalo Cuadra, and stage and costume design by Germán Droghetti. The musicians will be conducted by Pablo Carrasco.
