— With a career spanning almost twenty years, Tryo Teatro Banda is one the most important Chilean theater companies from the last few decades. Their unique style, which fuses music, literature and history, has turned them into contemporary troubadours/chroniclers, whose aim is to take important events and look at them with a fresh and critical eye. The conquest of Chile, the Arauco War and the Quilin Parliament have been some of the stories they’ve told to large audiences of all ages.
— It’s one of the company’s biggest and most ambitious productions, with a bigger stage and with the story and cast - including María Izquierdo - interacting with both the set and the music created especially for its scenes. Using popular histrionic elements and Andean music, the group perfected their skills with Bolivian musician Edwin Conde. The score was written by Simón Schriever and Greco Acuña and the orchestra - with musicians from the MusicActual Ensemble - is conducted by Sebastián Errázuriz.
—Their style has also developed. “Compared to the other shows I’ve directed for Tryo Teatro Banda, I’d say that their genre’s evolved in this one, because we’ve incorporated tragedy. In fact, the play has its own elements of Greek tragedy, such as the choir, death, betrayal and destiny”, said director, Sebastián Vila in an interview with the Teatro a Mil Foundation.
