LORCA, CHILD OF THE MOON
Los Angeles, CA
This stunning Opera- Flamenca is a tribute to the great Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca. The play takes place in Lorca's mind and unites the real and the fantastic by exploring Lorca's creative mind and his well known literary characters.
Lorca Child of the Moon is the triumph of art over violence. Since Lorca written his plays during the violent Franco’s regime in the 1930’s he challenged the accepted role of women in society and explored taboo issues. The great poet is not with us anymore but metaphorically, every day in every country of the world one of his characters stands up and continues his cause.
Lorca child of the Moon was written and directed by Margarita Galban, with music of Ian Krouse and translated by Carmen Zapata and Michael Dewell
