Scaramouche is a new production at the Theatre Victòria that will run from September 23rd until October 16th. The musical theatre piece, written by Dagoll Dagom, is set in France in 1789 and tells the story of two twin brothers separated at birth. Set against the backdrop of starvation and a bitter class war the play also presents some of the more biting social issues that plagued France at the time of the French Revolution. Scaramouche, a masked hero, uses his revolutionary voice by spreading anti-monarchy pamphlets. A hero against the tyrannical aristocracy, he serves as a figure of hope for the working classes. However, the play juxtaposes significant social and historical context with the humorous escapades of the two brothers as they try to win the hearts of their lovers Olympia and Camilla. Music is directed by Joan Vives with lyrics by Joan Lluís Bozzo.
The musical will be performed in Catalan and starts at 8.30pm. Ticket prices vary depending on your choice of seating (€25-€50) and there are numerous discounts available, including special family packs.
