A half-hour session delving into the detail of Ainadamar, enhancing your enjoyment and extending your knowledge of the piece.
Tickets are free but should be reserved in advance.
In his critically acclaimed opera, Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov creates a vibrant, poetic sound world combining opera with flamenco dance and song. Ainadamar (the Spanish pronunciation of the Arabic name ‘Ayn al-Dam’, meaning ‘The Fountain of Tears’) brilliantly reimagines and explores the life and works of Federico García Lorca – playwright and poet – 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.
