In the wake of sorrow, a town prepares to celebrate happier times with the union of a young bride and groom. But secret passions are rekindled on the eve of the wedding, a revenge descends to settle the score.
Written in 1932, Blood Wedding (Bodas de sangre) is a classic tale of forbidden love and retribution, inspired by a real-life fatal feud between two families in the mountains of rural Spain.
This production was played in a remote war ravaged Middle Eastern setting. Scenes took place in and around the ruins of an ancient stone wall, layers of real red roses piled high simultaneously symbolised the preparations for a marriage celebration and funeral offerings at the tombs of the recently deceased.
