Teatro del Lago has been creating its own productions for 10 years, where students from the School of the Arts put on a great show, working side by side with nationally and internationally renowned professional artists. Nutcracker, Coppélia, Cinderella, Peter and the Wolf have been some of them. 

In 2021, Teatro del Lago worked with educational establishments in various regions of the country to inspire the staging for their next presentation, and at the end of 2022 it premiered a reduced version of Pinocchio.

This 2023, with the support of Isa Intervial, Teatro del Lago presents Pinocchio, an in-house production that premieres exclusively at this festival, inspired by the famous work of Carlo Collodi, adapted to the traditions of southern Chile.

A large part of the cast of this production, led by Helmuth Reichel Silva, is made up of students from the dance, instrumental and choral singing sections of the Teatro del Lago School of the Arts.
