SYNOPSIS

For enigmatic reasons, Duke Vincentio leaves Vienna, delegating his rule of the city to Angelo. The latter imposes his moral view with extreme rigour, sentencing the young Claudio to death for committing a sexual indiscretion. But when the sister of the condemned man, the novitiate, Isabella, implores him to spare her brother's life, Angelo is not unmoved by her charms: "We are all frail."

Shifting from the Palace to the slum quarter, from the Court to the brothels, from emotional violence to obscenity, “Measure for Measure" explores the friction that exists between the private and public realms, between sacrifice and forgiveness. It is about the lust for power and the power of lust. After his production of “The Illusion", Carlos Aladro directs one of Shakespeare's most powerful and attractive works: "A comedy that destroys comedy", in the words of Harold Bloom.

Angelo: "The tempter or the tempted: who sins most?"
