Lorca child of the Moon is a stunning bilingual Opera- flamenca conceived as a tribute to the great spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca and his passion for life, justice and equal rights.
The opera takes place in the mind of Lorca, as he creates and gives life to his literary characters. Lorca’s three muses (the Moon, Death and Fate) walk around the writer inspiring him to continue his creative process dealing with problems of social justice
The opera concludes with the actors returning to their original characters thereby symbolizing the fact that Lorca’s characters live on forever, and are renewed every day by someone, somewhere in the entire world.
