About the show

Repetorio Espanol presents a journey to the Colombia of Gabriel García Márquez that explores the grisly murder of an innocent man and the guilt of a village. More…

Each of the townsfolk recount the fateful Monday morning when the Vicario twins took their revenge on Santiago Nasar for deflowering their sister. Any one of dozens of people might have been able to stop the brutal knifing right on his doorstep, but somehow the moment eluded them. A spectacular wedding, a savage scandal, and a murder to which an entire Latin American town appears to be an accessory to the fact. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles.
