Baraka's adaptation of Lorca's forgotten classic. Read More >

Baraka’s adaptation is set in a fantastical world, where two sprites bring to life puppet-like characters to tell their story. They create an extremely visual show, enchanting even a non-Spanish speaking audience.

This rarely performed play mixes Lorca’s grotesque comic tone with his more renowned tragic style, exploring eternal themes of love, desire, betrayal and death.

The old bachelor, Don Perlimplin, is coerced into marrying the young sensual Belisa. Equally persuaded by her mother, she accepts, but seeks the company of more virile men. Madly in love, Perlimplin devises a cunning plan to teach her to love with both body and soul.

Performed in Spanish with English surtitles
