Inspired by the tales and legends of the indigenous peoples of South America, “El Condor Pasa – Andean Hope is a fresh new take on the story of the common conflict between tradition, identity, lure of the city and urbanization. The music is infused with the rich sounds and melodies of the Andes.

The full orchestra will be augmented by several ethnic indigenous instruments from the region (quena, zampoña, charango, cajón), with chorus and dancers.

The production is semi-staged, and will be performed in English.
