Conversation with Joan Matabosch

Joan Matabosch in conversation with Antonio San José

Joan Matabosch uses this title in referring to Shakespeare’s Richard II in his proposals to improve society. He also refers to other classics such as Seneca: “In a moment the ashes are made, but a forest is a long time growing”, that is to say, as Matabosch explains, we should have the courage to construct instead of gloating over the devastation we are capable of causing. He also mentions Horace: “You must often make erasures if you mean to write what is worthy of being read a second time”, that is to say, one must have the courage to rectify when necessary. These proposals conclude his dialogue with Antonio San José, in which he looks back over his career and discusses his plans as the Teatro Real’s new artistic director.
