Platero Y YO at Anglia Ruskin Drama Studio, Covent Garden
31/07/12 - 7.30pm - Tickets: £11.50 (£8.50 concessions)
Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, in Moguer, a small whitewashed town near Seville, overlooking fields of vines, olives, pomegranates and the Rio Tinto, there lived a little silver donkey called, Platero, and the Nobel Prize winning poet, Julio Ramon Jimenez, who was born and grew up in the town. His best loved collection, Platero Y Yo (Platero & Me), paints an affectionate picture of Moguer and the timeless Andalusian landscape which influenced a whole generation of Spanish writers including Garcia Lorca.
In this delightful new stage adaptation Mike Maran once again teams up with Georgian director Levan Tsuladze and puppeteer Nino Namitcheishvili, following their record breaking collaboration with Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Top-selling classical guitarist Craig Ogden will perform the musical score especially composed for the stories.
