"To burn with desire and to remain silent is the greatest punishment we can inflict on ourselves."

"Blood Wedding", Lorca’s most celebrated play, is based on the true story of a fatal feud between two rural Spanish families that erupts when a bride elopes with her lover on her wedding day. It is a play that explores the enjoyment and the horror of the extremes of passion - but also a play of simple people leading simple lives that become engulfed by the greater forces of fate and destiny.
