Blood Wedding is a tragedy by Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca. It was written in 1932 and first performed at Teatro Beatriz in Madrid in March 1933, then later that year in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Theatre critics often group Blood Wedding with Garcia Lorca's Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba as the "rural trilogy". Garcia Lorca's planned "trilogy of the Spanish earth" remained unfinished at the time of his death, as he did not include The House of Bernarda Alba in this group of works. Blood Wedding praises purity, love and freedom and emphasizes that the life force can always rise and persist against the onslaught of death and cumbersome traditions.
Translated and directed by Ghotbedin Sadeghi, it will be performed every night at 20:00 in the hall of Ostad Saarigian from September 26 to October 2.
