The renowned Spanish author Federico García Lorca created what are now gems of classical drama. Already in the 1930s, he opened up the themes of emancipation, freedom, identity and women's role in society through prominent female heroines. In 1933, he wrote a thrilling drama, a beautiful poetic epic of passion, love and tradition, Blood Wedding. On the wedding day, Leonardo kidnaps the bride, his former love. Or rather, is she running away from her own groom? Are repressed feelings stronger than the fear of what is to come? Set in hot Andalusia, the story is an archetypal tale of mothers losing their sons, of fathers and daughters, of love that is stronger, and of honour that is beyond all rational reasoning. We observe the maturation of the heroes as they face death with great intensity. The dreamy drama is also about the desire to forgive, but it may not be as strong as the desire for revenge.
Running time is indicative, as the dress rehearsal is still due for the production.
