XXII Performing Arts Awards Barcelona

OCAÑA, REINA DE LAS RAMBLAS

BEST MUSICAL, BEST MUSICAL SINGER (Joan Vázquez)

From the Parallel to the Rambles, it is just one step: this is the route Joan Vázquez has taken showing that Paquito Forever and Ocaña have something in common in their ADN.  The excellent composition of Joan, the musical score in the hands of Marc Sambola and the dramaturgy of Marc Rosich have all made this possible. Thanks to them, Ocaña once more goes from copla to copla, up and down the Rambles which a few decades ago had become the neuralgic centre of a  Barcelona with a proudly libertarian, fun-loving  and transvestite character. The double Critics Prize is also something of a vindication of that Barcelona.
