Ainadamar tells the tragic story of legendary poet, playwright, and national icon Federico Garcia Lorca, assassinated by fascists during the Spanish Civil War. Flamenco, rumba rhythms, and classical singing are woven together in a gorgeous and heartbreaking score that is “destined to be among the great musical achievements of our time." — The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Through the memories of actress and muse Margarita Xirgu, Ainadamar (the Spanish pronunciation of the Arabic name ‘Ayn al-dam’, meaning ‘The Fountain of Tears’) explores the life and work of playwright and poet Federico García Lorca, whose anti-fascist stance and open homosexuality led to his death in 1936 at the hands of Franco’s Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War. Combining classical singing with flamenco dance and song, this new production will be directed by Lawrence Edelson, with choreography by Edelson and M. Gabriela Estrada.
