The House of Bernarda Alba

28 Feb - 9 Apr


Cervantes Theatre



The House of Bernarda Alba explores themes of repression, passion and conformity through the depiction of a matriarch’s domination of her five daughters. Described by the author as “a drama of women in the villages of Spain”, the deliberate exclusion of any male character from the action helps build the high level of sexual tension that is present throughout this masterpiece.

Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) , poet and dramatist, was one of the greatest Spanish writers of the 20th century. He was killed by nationalist troops at the age of thirty-eight at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War and two months after completing The House of Bernarda Alba.

In Spanish

Matinees on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays  at 2:30pm, evening performances Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm.

Duration: 2 hours (this includes a 15 minutes interval)
