THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA, By Federico García Lorca
12 Feb - 3 Mar|
The Cervantes Theatre presents a new production of Federico García Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba, a story based in the rural Spain of the 1930’s. The play centers in a house in Andalusia, where Bernarda Alba enforces her control over her young daughters to hold a period of mourning. As the drama develops, Bernarda’s strict ruling clashes with her daughter’s desires to live their youth outside the house. Lorca’s final masterpiece is a bitter and darkly comic tragedy that charts the tyranny, jealousy and desperate struggle for freedom that will tear Bernarda and her daughters apart.
Spanish language performances will be held from Monday to Wednesday at 7:30, with a matinee on Wednesdays at 2:30. English performances will take place from Thursday to Saturday, with a matinee on Saturdays at 2:30. With this production, the Spanish Theatre company continues its mission to present all of Federico García Lorca’s work, including his last and most acclaimed play.
