Ballet in two acts based on the play by Jacques Prévert

With the nineteenth century, on the Boulevard of the Crime and in its theaters, between dark jugglers and travelling acrobats, taverns and cabarets spreads this large popular fresco that José Martínez, inspired by Les Enfants du Paradis (Jacques Prévert), adapts in ballet. Theater of the funambulists, in slide, on scene, with the floor or the paradise are played the inaccessible loves and jealousy. Magic of the spectacle and its mysteries, a universe is revealed in which the real life and the theater are mixed.
