Alongside our own productions, we also produce shows on commission. In 2009 we were asked to stage the show “A l’arca a les vuit” (Be at the ark at eight), by the German dramatist Ulrich Hub. This show was produced by the Fundació Xarxa and was first performed at the Temporada Alta-Festival de Tardor de Catalunya. It could also be seen at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya in 2010-2011 and in several towns around the country.

  • “Three penguins and only two invitations to get onto Noah’s Ark. From this comic but sad situation, “A l’arca a les vuit” presents a reflection on friendship, life and divine essence in more than original way. This is a children’s show where those responsible for dealing with the deepest doubts on man’s essence are clowns. On the Temporada Alta program, this one is undoubtedly one of the most unusual proposals.“

Also in 2009 at the Caixaforum in Barcelona, we give the first performance of the concert “Un te a la menta” (A mint tea), with the Orquestra Àrab de Barcelona, conducting by Jordi Vallespí and our dramaturgy and staging. The concert, which was produced by the Obra Social de “La Caixa”, has been on tour around Spain ever since.

  • “Music for integration, a platform of expression for performers and bands of the world who reside and do their creative work in our country. Conducting by Jordi Vallespí and art management by Marc Hervàs.“

In May 2011, we gave the first performance of the ballet “Petruixka”, by Igor Stravinsky, at the Gran Teatre del Liceu. This is a production of the theatre itself, with performing by the company IT Dansa, choreography by Catherine Allard and our dramaturgy and staging. As well as at the Liceu, it has also been able to be seen in places such as the Temporada Alta-Festival de Tardor de Catalunya.

  • “The proposal was not disappointing and managed to keep children pinned to their seats even though it might have been the first time they had been to a theatre. This is further proof that a show for children or family show does not have to be at odds with quality. More than that, maybe many shows for adults would like to excite as much as Petruixka and the rest of the puppets taking life in this setup do.“

In the spring of 2015 was our first performance of “Oh, l’amor!”, the opera with music and libretto by Mario Ros, as part of the “Òpera a Secundària” (Secondary School Opera) series, organised by the Gran Teatre del Liceu. More than a thousand secondary school students accompanied by the Jove Orquestra Nacional de Catalunya (JONC) lead this opera which reflects on the relationship between a father and his children.

  • “Elisenda Carrasco and Marc Hervàs hold hands in “Oh, l’amor!”. The musical directress and stage manager propose a participative and innovative setup which will receive the complicity of 27 schools throughout the country. The active involvement of the young in initiatives like this gives new life to the opera sector by stimulating training and new creation, and gives the younger generation’s new communicative forms like lyrical singing and music.“
