Special Performance—Blood Wedding
By Federico Garcia Lorca; Translated By Langston Hughes;
Adapted by Melia Bensussen
November 19, 20 at 7:30 p.m. and November 21 at 2:00 p.m.
The IRSC Performing and Visual Arts Department presents a narrative of unrequited passion, isolation and vengeance, set in the Andalucia region of Spain in the early 20th century. Follow the gripping saga of a soon-to-be bride who is forced to confront her past and choose between her new husband and her former flame. Her decision will prove a matter of life and death, literally, for all those she loves. Filled with the intoxicating sounds and rhythms of Andalucian Flamenco music, Blood Wedding will charm the senses as it proves Lorca’s observation, “Better be dead with the blood flowing, than live with it rotting within.”
