Comments | Dillie is a short monodrama of operístico character for tenor and instrumental quartet. The action of the work is carried out in an interrogation room where a teenager confesses his crime. This is a dramatic case of sexual abuse in which the protagonist is brought to an extreme situation after his classmates record and share a video showing the abuses. An present-day, crude and tragic story, accompanied by a music of high voltage and deeply committed to his time.
