This Grammy-winning one-act opera from Argentinian-born composer Osvaldo Golijov features a libretto from acclaimed playwright David Henry Hwang. "Ainadamar (Fountain of Tears)" tells the true story of Spanish avant-garde playwright and poet Federico Garcia Lorca, as recalled years later by his friend and muse, the actress Margarita Xirgu. The controversial Lorca, also known for his relationship with Salvador Dali, is believed to have been assassinated during the Spanish Civil War for his liberal views and anti-fascist writings. This stunning production is performed in Spanish with English supertitles. Be sure to show up an hour before the performance if you'd also like to enjoy the Opera Overtures lecture, which is included in the cost of a ticket.
