Azul, Otra Vez (Blue, Revisited) is a musical adaption of Rubén Darío’s poetry and short stories that combines the author’s main characters into one tale about a king who selects entertainers to live and work on his land. When a poet arrives, he introduces the king and his people to the power of words and stories. Its score fuses Latin jazz, South American folklore and traditional musical theatre.
