Show Description:
Year 3 of the 4-year developmental process for the new opera based on Federico García Lorca's final play, La Casa de Bernarda Alba.
Co-commissioned by Cleveland Opera Theater and Baldwin Wallace Conservatory, and made possible in part by generous funding from the Kulas Foundation, this process began with a reading of Caridad Svich's new English translation of the play on {NOW} Fest '17 and continued on {NOW} Fest '18 with the first public reading of the English / Spanish-language libretto by Caridad Svich. 

{NOW} Fest '19 presents a workshop reading of scenes from Acts I and II of this bi-lingual (English / Spanish) opera performed with piano accompaniment.
