It tells the story of Pare Pere Esteve who was born in Denia in 1583 and lived at the foot of Montgo, spending his time in meditation and prayer.

The Virgen del Consuelo’s capacity for the 150-minute long opera is limited to 350 and the €10 cost of tickets for the performance will go to the parish for important repairs to the church building.
