LA Opera El Gato Montés: The Wildcat

Plácido Domingo stars in a thrilling tale of love, passion and death.

In one of the greatest masterpieces of the Spanish lyrical theater, a beautiful woman stirs a fatal rivalry between a renowned bullfighter and a bandit on the run. Long championed by Plácido Domingo, who performs the title role, El Gato Montés by Manuel Penella, spins a quintessentially Spanish tale through passionate melodies, dazzling choreography and an atmospheric new staging from Madrid’s famed Teatro de la Zarzuela.

"A finely wrought example of Spanish verismo, in which passion and sentiment bubble close to the music's surface." – The New York Times
