The highlight of this year’s drama programme is the first staging of F.G. Lorca’s 1933 cult drama Blood Wedding at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival. The plot of Lorca’s tragedy takes place in a rural environment in the first half of the 20th century, but the piece eludes any kind of temporal determination due to the universality of the story it is based on. The characters are victims of their own passions and inevitability of their wrong choices or tragic destinies. A double curse is upon them: within the confines of their social class, passion remains their only space of freedom, even at the cost of damnation or death. 

Blood Wedding is directed by the renowned director Franka Perković, known to Dubrovnik audiences for her staging of Tomislav Zajec’s Saved in 2010.
