ARU’s second-year performing arts’ students present Bernarda Alba, a music-theatre piece with words and music by Michael John LaChiusa. Originally produced in 2006 by New York’s Lincoln Center Theatre, this work is based on Federico Garcia Lorca’s masterpiece The House of Bernarda Alba.
Set in a small village in rural Spain, in the 1930s, this piece explores the religious and socioeconomic themes of the time, featuring a rich dramatic counterpoint as well as flamenco-sounding rhythms.
These performances will be assessed work by Anglia Ruskin University’s 2nd year Performing Arts students.
