Luces de bohemia is the story of Max Estrella; a blind man, an alcoholic, and a poet. When Shakespearean drama meets Spanish truest self, an entirely new universe is created. It is a journey of the two sons of the bohemia, apostles of the working class, taking you through the lustful streets of Madrid.
Ramón del Valle-Inclán’s widely celebrated esperpento embodies a new vision of human experience in this world. It forces us to be aware - to realize that every street is El callejon del gato, that inside of us all there is a Max Estrella.
