Quantum Theatre's Ainadamar

The stones began to cry, the Spanish say, when poet Federico Garcia Lorca died at the hands of Franco’s fascists. “Ainadamar,” the supposed site of that murder, means “fountain of tears” in Arabic. This is a dream of a chamber opera, a Deep Song containing the cry of the fl amenco singer, the pounding of horses’ hooves, and fl oating above them, Margarita Xirgu, the great Catalan tragedian and Lorca’s muse, left to sing his song and bequeath his freedom.
