Event: Blood Wedding by Federico García Lorca in Malthouse Theathre

Event: Blood Wedding by Federico García Lorca in Malthouse Theathre

miércoles 22 de octubre de 2014, 11:21h

Malthouse brings an adaptation of one of Lorca’s greatest playwrights to Melbourne, a bilingual production directed by Malthouse Theatre’s Artistic Director Marion Potts.


Imbued with desire, violence, and a fatalistic drive, Blood Wedding is a rich paean to the Spanish culture of passion and the cost of a life of lived for love. Performed by an Australian and international cast including Silvia Colloca (Van Helsing), Mariola Fuentes (Talk to Her by Pedro Almodóvar) and Nicole da Silva (Network 10’s Rush) and delivered in both English and Spanish, Blood Wedding pays homage to folkloric tradition whilst provoking a dazzling display of contemporary multiculturalism.

Centred upon two feuding families whose simmering tensions explode when their children elope, Blood Wedding sets the stage for a tragedy of truly Shakespearean proportions. While the wedding guests feast, the fugitives make their escape, desperate to start a new life together. In Lorca’s world, however, nothing is ever that simple: not only is one of the runaways already married, the other is the bride…

Fiesta de la Tarde
Saturday 18 August (following the 2pm matinee)

To celebrate Blood Wedding, we’re throwing a Spanish fiesta. Enjoy a special Lorca inspired afternoon of passion, music, laughter and that amazing clapping thing that only the Spanish can do. With Roma songs, Lorca poetry, flamenco, tapas (not to mention the sangria), it will be a Spanish fiesta not to be missed.
