About the show

Repertorio Espanol presents a tragedy that unfolds in a cloistered world of women in 1930's Spain; presented in Spanish with English translation. More…

Bernarda Alba is a dominating woman, who, after the death of her second husband, imposes an eight year period of mourning on her five adult daughters, whom she has always controlled to an excessive degree. The mourning period further isolates the daughters, and tension mounts within the household. A story of pretensions, self-deceits and destructive willfulness in a world of women who are all victims. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles.
