U.VA. SPANISH THEATER GROUP TO PERFORM LORCA PLAY FEB. 6-9

February 3, 2003-- The University of Virginia’s Spanish Theater Group will present its annual spring play Feb. 6-9 at Helms Theater. This year’s production will be Federico Garcia Lorca’s acclaimed and colorful flamenco drama, “Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding).”

Evening performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and matinees will be offered at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for others and can be purchased at the door or in advance at the Spanish department office, 112 Wilson Hall.

With a cast of Spanish-speaking students, former students and faculty, the popular theater group performs in Spanish and offers a different drama each year from Spain or Latin America.

Spanish professor Fernando Opere, the troupe’s founder, directs this year’s cast in Lorca’s poetic tragedy, “Bodas de Sangre.” Written in 1938, it is one of the Spanish poet’s most famous works. It is set in Lorca’s native Andalucia region and tells the story of a young bride who elopes with her lover.
