Magui Mira, Director of the work, reminds us in the hand program a few words from Vargas Llosa referred to the novel: "the story of Emma Bovary is a blind, stubborn, desperate rebellion against social violence that stifles his right to pleasure..." And adds Mira: "since 1850, millions of women have succumbed to the spell of this woman's fiction, born from the imagination of a man. Millions of women have been identified with the need to break with a marriage that drowns them irrationally. Flaubert writes: "a man, is at least free, can enjoy any pleasure. But when a desire is born in a woman already there is a rule to suppress it." Emma lee, imagine, want to and enjoys sex. But nothing left her satisfied. He chokes, flees to breathe and wrong output. More and more single, more impotent, enters the path of destruction. It is impossible that millions of women, today, do not identify with her."
