Sport, like culture, moves the masses and stirs emotions. Sara Revuelta and Lourdes Ortega, two Paralympic players in the Spanish Basketball Team, know all about this, and thanks to Endesa and the Teatro Real in Madrid, they were able to see and enjoy opera for the first time in their lives.
Tosca tells the story of a woman who seems fragile but, after living unimaginable situations, becomes a true heroine. It is inevitable that this masterpiece by Giacomo Puccini really excited these two women who share passion and who have an incredible story to tell about overcoming difficulties.
According to the Observatory for Disability, in Spain there are more than 4 million disabled people. This represents 9% of the total population, a percentage that includes our two protagonists, both 24 years old. Sara Revuelta lost the mobility of her legs as a result of chemotherapy treatment that cured the leukemia she had suffered for two and a half years, but caused a spinal cord injury. For Lourdes Ortega, it was a virus that affected her legs when she had barely started to walk.
