Written by Dino Lanti, Cuentos Cruentos is an original Spanish musical that offers a contemporary twist on a number of our favourite traditional tales. The Seven Dwarves are on unemployment benefits, an overweight Cinderella can’t pay for her glass slippers, the Three Little Pigs can’t find affordable housing and Alice gets lost in Wonderland after partying a little too hard. How will these classic childhood characters cope with being thrust into the daily struggles and complexities of modern-day life?
Being performed by candlelight, Teatro Calánime’s fourth run of Cuentos Cruentos is dark, twisted and funny, and will be showing at Poblenou’s Utopia126 venue from March 17th-20th.
Tickets are available from €11.20 using the discount code ‘barcelonametropolitan’ (valid until March 13th and limited to the first 15 tickets). More information here. Alternatively, read our exclusive preview for the event here.
