Lola: the life of Lola Montez

Toured 17 September 2008 – 1 April 2009 and August 2009

Lola: the life of Lola Montez told the true story of the infamous 19th century Spanish dancer who stormed her way through life on a tumultuous journey of seduction, sorrow and success. An actress and courtesan, a revolutionary and adventuress; she was a breaker of hearts and the toppler of a kingdom.

Fusing theatre, dance and live music from renowned flamenco guitarist Ricardo Garcia, this was a “racy, pacey and inventive chamber-sized physical theatre production based on this extraordinary woman’s life.” - The Times

“This is a real-life picaresque romp through the courts and theatres of nineteenth-century Europe”. - Time Out

“Inventive and imaginative.” - Liverpool Daily Post

“Trestle’s choice of lead – Georgina Roberts – was nothing short of genius. Roberts brought laughs thick and fast and the characters deep vulnerability always brimmed close to the surface.” - Irish Post

Lola: the life of Lola Montez was a collaboration with Barcelona based dance company Increpación Danza.
