The little known Spanish Operetta Apolo & Dafne is a staged musical comedy based on the Greek myth, which tells of the conflict of Apolo and Cupid for the love of the nymph Dafne.

The first act was written by the celebrated Sebastián Durón, and the second by Juan de Navas (circa 1705), employing a series of lively dance rhythms. The production will be brought to life by a top-tier artistic team including Mexican stage director Federico Figueroa whose career has taken him to the major opera houses of Spain, including the Teatro de la Zarzuela and the Teatro Real as well as major theaters in Mexico; Antonio Bartolo the lauded baroque period specialist in costume and set design, who in this case places the action in Ancient Greece with more modern lighting and sets, Jaime Puente choreographer of Baroque dance sequences within the opera.
