He 13 this work opens in April and can be seen on the days 13, 15, 17, 19 Y 21 and that highlights an irreplaceable woman in our recent history.

The work focuses on the second half of the life of the lexicographer María Moliner when, making a virtue of necessity, and using the cultural confinement to which it was forced after Franco's victory in the Civil War, decides to realize his amazing idea: the feat of doing it alone, in his house, a dictionary whose substance put in evidence the dictionary of academics...
The creation of this opera stems from Paco Azorín's idea of ​​vindicating the figure of the great lexicographer. with libretto (2012) by Lucía Vilanova and music (2016) by Antoni Parera Fons, Azorín's own stage direction is conceived as a contemporary documentary opera "intended, written and composed for today's audience". A synthesis of musical drama that uses a modern formula full of contrasts and emotions. In it everything is a scene, is theater and therefore, is full of pulse.
