    On the morning of her wedding, a young Bride’s former lover arrives at her isolated village. Their reunited passion lights the long-simmering fires of their family’s feud, converging in a magical nighttime realm of desire and danger. Part of Lorca’s masterful “trilogy of the Spanish earth,” this production features dance and live music inspired by the heart-rhythms of flamenco. $8-$12.
