Online streamed premiere on November 15 to 22, 2020

Live premiere on September 28, 2022 at Ateneu Barcelonès, Barcelona

With music by Joan Magrané, Helena Tornero writes the confession of a woman who returns to the cellar where she was kidnapped and abused by her father when she was a teenager. Inevitably, she must face the ghosts and memories from which she has always kept at bay.

This piece should have premièred at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in the autumn of 2020, but the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic meant that it could only be streamed. It is part of Sis Solos Soles, an Opera de Butxaca i Nova Creació (ÒBNC) project which unites six monodramas for female voice and instrumentalist into a single performance. It was commissioned from six different librettist-composer teams. While exploring the bowels of a theatre, the audience should discover, through a sort of intimate confession, the tales underlying the different voices which are trapped in their respective home environments.
