This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

In this one-night-only event, internationally acclaimed director Calixto Bieito takes us inside his new adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ fantastical 1953 play, Camino Real, in an intimate conversation with Goodman Theatre Resident Artistic Associate Henry Godinez. Dubbed “one of Williams’ most imaginative works,” by The New York Times, Camino Real is a rarely performed carnival of desire and temptation; this production marks the first original collaboration with an American theater for director Calixto Bieito, who is known throughout Europe for his radical, revisionist interpretations of classic operas and plays. This talk is presented in association with the Goodman Theatre.

To register, please email chicago@cervantes1.org or call 312-335-1996. (The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.) The talk is followed by a reception with wine.
