El desdén, con el desdén

Agustín Moreto _ Version Carolina África_ Dirección Iñaki Rikarte

El desdén, con el desdén

El desdén, con el desdén is a comedy written around a paradox of the, apparently amusing, human soul, without being innocent, according to which the disdain may cause love in the disdeined's heart. The matter lies in if this flame is the result of true love or vanity.

Moreto sets in motion a plot of successful carpentry where he aways gives priority to the game, lots of scenes in which the characters have to lie, pretend, or hide what they feel... so he twists the vicissitude pushing passions to their limit; expert in this cruel paradox of the comedy according to which the worst the characters feel, the more the spectators enjoy the play.
