Life is a Dream is based on the play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, it is a show that combines the dance story-telling of Brandstrup with the stunning visual imagination of the Quay Brothers, and is enriched by the harmonious music of Witold LutosÅ‚awski, played by a full-size symphony orchestra. It is a dream-like tale of the illusory nature of human existence.
