A poetic fantasia on the life of painter Sebastian Gòmez. First published in 1838 and now revived by Lars Iver Shiller, who dubs the poem "The Zombie Did It" as a Spanish framework for a song cycle with some of Hans Christian Andersen's most beautiful and personal poems on life, death, love, passion and fame.

Most of the texts are unknown to the average person on the street and new sides of the great writer are revealed, when they are sung and recited.

The scenography for the performance is a painter's studio with pictures, easels, sketches, brushes, paint cans, etc.

The performance will take place at the theater Riddersalen in Frederiksberg, a suburb of Copenhagen, on Thursday, October 30 at 7:30 p.m. and will last 2 hours and 10 minutes, including intermission.
