The concert at Saint Ovide

Probably the best and most moving play by Buero Vallejo

In the years that preceded the French Revolution, there was a hospice for the blind and homeless in Paris. One day, Valindín, a rich trader, has an idea: putting together six blind men to play in a parodic orchestra. Completely unconscious of the authentic and cruel intentions, the sightless sign a one-year contract. The first festival where they will act is Saint Ovide. However, things do not turn out as Valindín expected.
