And La Cieca herself heard from an old. old, old friend who has sung a leading role in one of Bieito’s new productions:
Calixto was a puppy dog to work with. If you saw his show, you would think “I would never do such a thing” or “what kind of person would envision such things.”Â But when he asks you to “just try” x y or z, it is impossible to resist. Total sweetheart…. Real mensch.
