La vida en rosa (1999)

An adaptation of "Réquiem por Yarini," a play written in the '60s by Cuban playwright Carlos Felipe, Teatro Buendía's "La Vida en Rosa" is the story of Alejandro Yarini, a pimp and politician stabbed to death in the early 1900s. A "musical tragedy," the piece revolves around a love triangle in an environment ruled by foreign capital, prostitution and tourism, a tropical masquerade in cabaret style where song and dance are masks for sadness, innocence, tragedy. The play is an exploration of passion, questioning heritage and myth, a critical look at the past and the manifold structures of time.
