Life Is a Dream
Please join us for an original Trafika Europe Radio Theater premiere! Calderón de la Barca’s “Life Is a Dream” (a Spanish Baroque allegorical play) is here translated, excerpted, and adapted for radio by Emma Jones, with a cast from Carnegie Mellon University – with translation assistance from Brynn Durecki, Andrew Lee, and Cameron Mills, under the direction of Dr. Alejandra Juno Rodriguez Villar, Associate Professor of Spanish at Hanover College. This is a little-known, second version of this play from 1677, yet to be published in English! After the performance, please stay tuned for an informative and engaging discussion on the production of this play and its Baroque context, with Emma Jones and Dr. Alejandra Villar, hosted by Andrew Singer.
