About the Artist:
La Fura dels Baus is the innovative Barcelona-based theater group behind this production of Wagner’s Ring cycle. Established in 1979, La Fura began as a street theater group and over the years has developed its own “Furan language,” style, and aesthetics based on collective creation. Since the early 1990s, La Fura dels Baus has diversified its creative efforts, moving into plays, digital theater, film, opera, and major corporate events. La Fura produced the opening ceremony for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, which was broadcast and watched live by more than 500 million viewers. Since then, such companies as Pepsi, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Volkswagen, Swatch, Airtel, Microsoft, Absolut Vodka, Columbia Pictures, Warner Bros., the Port of Barcelona, Telecom Italia, and Sun Microsystems have commissioned the group to produce large-scale “macro” shows for them around the world. La Fura’s production L’home del mil·lenni, celebrating the new millennium, drew an audience of more than 20,000 in Barcelona; Divine Comedy was performed in Florence for more than 35,000 spectators; La navaja en el ojo, which opened the Valencia Biennial, attracted an audience of more than 20,000. A number of courses and workshops have trained actors in Furan language. La Fura’s work in opera includes productions of La Atlántida, Le martyre de Saint Sébastien, La damnation de Faust, The Magic Flute, Elektra, Aida, Carmina Burana, and Terra Nova.
