The words of Federico García Lorca bring Nuria Espert and Lluis Pasqual together once again

09 to 10 November 2019

Summer 2018: Nuria Espert was resting after the punishing tour of the play “Incendios”, by Wajdi Mouawad (which also came to the Arriaga), when she received a call telling her she had been awarded the “Europe Special Theatre Award” for her extraordinary career as a stage actress and director, and for her defence of freedoms.

She wanted to give a short recital at the awards ceremony to be held in November 2018 in Saint Petersburg; and so the idea of “Romancero Gitano” was born. It was going to be a 20-minute sample of poetry, but it ended up being an hour-long recital in which she returns, along with Lluis Pasqual, to the words of Federico García Lorca, the poet and playwright who has occupied a prominent place in both their careers.
