In the year 2012, the Arriaga Theatre put on its own production of “La corte de Faraón”. Owing to the success of this show, we have decided to stage the production again.
Joseph, Jacob’s favourite son, is sold by his brothers as a slave to the Egyptians, enriching the meaning of the word Cainite. The poor young Joseph ends up in the house of Putifar who suffers a severe erectile dysfunction, much to the desperation of his passionate wife Lota. Her attempts to calm her passions with the young slave endanger the possibility of Joseph continuing to be called “Joseph the chaste” without falling into a lie. With such a story, you can see why Franco’s censors banned this “biblical operetta”.
The Arriaga Theatre is putting on a hilarious production of this operetta, with the excellent score by Vicente Lleó and the libretto by Perrín and Palacios, damned at the time as being “smutty”, directed by Emilio Sagi with stage design by Daniel Bianco.
New joint production by the Arriaga Theatre and the Campoamor Theatre from Oviedo.
