Bernarda Alba Edit

Stage Musical (2006).
Music and lyrics: Michael John LaChiusa


Adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca's 1936 allegorical play about Fascism, The House of Bernarda Alba. When her second husband dies, tyrannical Bernarda Alba forces her five daughters to adhere strictly to the traditional 8-year grieving period, which includes limited contact with the outside world. The sex-starved ladies compete jealously for the attention of a handsome young man who is courting the eldest daughter.
