Based on a true story of love and betrayal, Blood Wedding is a powerful and innovative modern classic. Lorca wrote this poetic exploration of the conflict between individual desires and social conventions years after reading a newspaper account of a young bride in Andalusia who abandoned her husband on their wedding day to escape with her childhood sweetheart.
Lorca’s tale of ill-fated romance unfolds with the fire and power characteristic of his work. The force of love and primal desire battle the weight of history, themes that are particularly resonant given his own tragically short life.
