By Federico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Norma Saldivar
“Better dead with the blood drained away than alive with it rotting.” Passions run high in this visceral and brooding tragedy. Set in the Spanish countryside, Blood Wedding chronicles a tragic couple as they navigate social mores, economic hardship, and generational expectations, ultimately facing insurmountable odds in their desire to live and love.
