Sala BBK to Premiere ‘Borderland’

By Afton Wooten

Marta Eguilior and Igor Escudero’s new opera “Borderland” will make its premiere on May 20, 2022 at the Sala BBK in Bilbao.

Soprano Ruth González will star in the one act chamber opera about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). The opera follows Elle who narrates her experience with mental illness. The term “borderland” is an outdated psychiatry term to describe a safe space within a person suffering from BPD.

González will be joined by pianist Carlos Calvo Tapia and cellist Irene Celestino. Librettist Eguilior will also serve as the stage director and set designer.

This new work will have a three-show run at Sala BBK from May 20 – 22 and then travel to the Corral de Comedias on May 27 -28.
