Final Performances of LTGI’s
‘Bodas de Sangre’ at TAMIU

Final Spanish language performances of the Laredo Theater Guild International's (LTGI) “Bodas de Sangre  by iconic Spanish poet, director and dramatist Federico García Lorca are this week at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU).

“Bodas de Sangre” is being presented by LTGI in cooperation with TAMIU in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Theatre.

Spanish language performances will be presented Thursday, Oct. 25 through the closing performance Sunday, Oct. 28.  Show times Thursday through Saturday are at 8:00 p.m.  The closing Sunday performance is at 3:00 p.m.

García Lorca’s “Bodas de Sangre,” inspired by a true-life 1928 newspaper account, is set in the early 1930’s and is the most famous play of his self-described “trilogy of the Spanish earth.” It is the story of a wedding arranged between two families that turns tragic and murderous as shocking events driven by grand passion, deception, revenge, and fate unfold.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for students and seniors (65+) with valid ID and are available for advance purchase at Foster’s, located at 1202 Del Mar Boulevard, Suite 101; Blue Top located at 101 Hillside Road #11, and at the TAMIU Bookstore, as well as at the box office one hour prior to each show. The play is not recommended for children.

Performances also feature flamenco musicians, singers and dancers weaved through the show according to Lorca’s expressed design and in some cases, performing his own musical compositions.
