Salzburg Festival

In 1996, La Fura dels Baus received a visit from Gerard Mortier in Granada, where represented La Atlantida, by Manuel de Falla. It was almost by chance, thanks to a contributor who offered to mediate and show the operatic debuts of the until then groundbreaking theatre company to the Belgian director. At the end of the work, without giving him importance, cited to Mortier, then responsible for the Salzburg Festival, in a cocktail bar in the city. We were tired after the bolus, fijate that unwise to carry it there, recalls alex Olle in the lobby of a Moscow hotel. In that noisy Grenadian bar, Mortier saw his potential and invited them to participate in Salzburg with his review of the myth of Faust. Since then, the collaboration of the Belgian, now artistic director of the Teatro Real, and Carlus Padrissa (Balsareny, 1959) and alex Olle (Barcelona, 1960) has not stopped and has a future with three more almost committed works.
