Bernarda Alba musical by LaChiusa at the Union Theatre
Triptic Theatre presents Bernarda Alba, a musical by Michael John LaChiusa, based on Federico García Lorca’s 1936 play, at the Union Theatre, a fringe venue in south London from 23 Aug to 17 Sep 2011.
Directed by Katherine Hare, choreography by Racky Plews, musical director Leigh Thompson.
"Bernarda Alba is a taut, provocative musical about an emotionally and sexually repressed group of daughters rebelling against their smothering mother in 1930s rural Spain. Inspired by the drama and fire of Spanish flamenco and traditional folk songs and with an all-female cast, LaChiusa’s take on Lorca’s work is a seamless blend of music, drama and dance bursting with passion as the women’s struggle against a repressive regime culminates in a shocking climax."
