Antoni de Montpalau in search of a vampire. A journey from the depth of darkness, to the deepest feelings of the heart
1840. Antoni de Montpalau, a renowned naturalist scientist of the Barcelona bourgeoisie, will be pushed to solve the mystery of the deaths that plague the people of Pratdip and are attributed to the bloodthirsty vampire Onofre de Dip. Helped by his cousin, the captain of the navy, Isadora Novau, and by the brave young Agnès d’Urpí, Montpalau’s firm rationalist principles will begin to crack.
Based on the vampire adventure novel by Joan Perucho, this adaptation focuses on the initiatory journey of the hero, Antoni de Montpalau, and the discovery of a world he thought impossible.
This show won’t take place in the city of Igualada, but in the Centre Polivalent de Can Papasseit in Vilanova del Camí.
