THE STORY OF THE MOST FAMOUS BROTHEL IN THE WORLD,
thanks to PICASSO.

Young Pablo Picasso, a struggling and as-yet unknown artist, finds love, comfort, and inspiration in the company of the “ladies” of a brothel in Barcelona, located on Avignon Street.

As PICASSO creates his masterpiece,
the "ladies" from the canvas come to life onstage
and interact with the painter.

The great Spanish genius and his creation
as you've never seen them before!

We continue our critically acclaimed series of BILINGUAL productions, in particular our focus
on the Spanish genius PABLO PICASSO.
