On the music in els joglars: Columbi Lapsus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper aims to analyse one of the most remarkable expressive resources in the theatre production of Els Joglars: music, whose prevalence has been and continues to be central to the production and staging of its entire repertoire. We will illustrate this point through the show Columbi Lapsus (1989), a piece unique in its conception. Written in the form of opera, the music also takes on a wide range of roles in the show. By way of this study, we will be witnesses to the multiplicity of voices that intertwine in this singular production. Here, sound comes to the fore as a key element for the development of the plot and for anyone who wishes to unravel the thread satisfactorily.
