The Seven Deadly Sins was the final collaboration between Weill and Brecht, two of Weimar's most revolutionary artists. They composed a satire of capitalist society, sung and danced, for two characters and a chorus. Two sisters (both named "Anna") travel through a decadent version of the USA, seeking to conquer the American dream and succumbing to all the sins along the way.

El castillo de Barbazul is a masterpiece of expressionism, extremely modern in its scenic approach and its strongly psychological symbolism. This new production will have a projected scenography to trap the audience in the oppressive atmosphere of this thriller of nuptials and crimes, which are set to Bartók's fascinating score.
