Written in 1975 by Paulo Pontes and Chico Buarque de Hollanda, Gota D'agua (Drop of Water), one of the most important scripts of the Brazilian drama, returns to the stage.
This superproduction opens in March 1999 at The Cultural Artistic Theatre in Sao Paulo. In May 1999 at The Joao Caetano Theatre in Rio de Janeiro, running throughout other famous Brazilian capitals until December 1999.
Performed in 1976 for the first time, the play will this time be directed by Fauzi Arap and Eduardo Godin. It stars once again, the legend of the Brazilian theatre, Bibi Ferreira.
Inspired by Euripides' drama Medea, Gota D'agua analyzes the tragic story of a betrayed woman who faces a new marriage, trying to revenge her ex-partner, but she only manages to destroy herself, her life and her children.
Bibi Ferreira, Brazilian actress, singer and dancer in her mid seventies, will represent a more subtle character with delicate physical movements but more powerful and convincing in her gestures, singing and speeches. According to director Fauzi Arap this notable script will survive forever, due to the wonderful sountrack written by Chico Buarque de Hollanda which includes the famous hits of the Brazilian Musical Theatre History: Gota D'agua (theme song), A Flor da Idade, Basta um Dia, and Bem Querer.
Information about tickets, performances and cast will be announced later.
