Juan Carlos Onetti set his novels and stories in his imaginary city, “Santa Maria”, a mythical place that is now the main theme in “The City of Lies”. The opera of Elena Mendoza and Matthias Rebstock will be worldwide released next February 20th at Madrid Royal Theatre.
Produced by Gerard Mortier, its first night was expected to be in 2015, but it was put off due to economic reasons, as artistic director Joan Mataboch has explained. Finally, the opera will have a worldwide premiere this year.
