I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Royal Theater - Life and Death of Marina Abramovic

I was certainly very curious about the evolution of famous performance artist and photographer Marina Abramovic, who exposes in such a dramatic way her art, and probably even more interested on how it would be represented at Teatro Real under the new guidance of Gerard Mortier and the fantastic direction of Robert Wilson, my new idol!

Here is a video of the show from magazine El Cultural (El Mundo). Get your own opinion! Mine can be reduced to one word; overwhelming!!

It is certainly a very avant-garde work. Not an opera, nor a play and furthermore the three main characters; artist Marina, actor William Dafoe and singer Antony from Antony and the Johnsons (all three upper top) play the same role: Marina Abramovic! What a confusing thing...but the result is genial!

Interesting too to show it in Madrid for a non so avant-garde public...  very risky and yet collecting great success, triple fan for it!

Tickets, of course, are completely sold out, however, if you are under 30 (30 included) there is a way to get the best tickets with 90% discount: 4 pm go to the Opera ticket desk and show your ID, they will tell you how many seats are left at a 90% discount (there are always left tickets belonging to Opera subscripts - Abono).
