Tryo Teatro Banda tells the story of one of the most ridiculous episodes of the conquest of America: the exploits of Spanish duo Francisco Pizarro and Diego de Almagro in their search to find and conquer the Inca Empire by capturing its last emperor, Atahualpa. The play depicts the meeting of two worlds, with a story marked by selfishness, greed, and betrayal. It also reflects on Chile’s role in this feat, which triggered a tragic end. The show is accompanied by a live chamber orchestra that is incorporated into the theatrical histrionics and completes this novel troubadour production.

Tragicomedia del ande is a Teatro a Mil Foundation and GAM Center coproduction, with financing from a 2018 National Cultural and Artistic Development Grant (Fondart).
