The House of Bernarda Alba

Description

The House of Bernarda Alba, written by Federico García Lorca in 1936, is a tragedy that combines the tragic and comical, skillfully adapted and directed by José María Muscari who has made relevant changes to the setting and the original script.

The characters are nine well-known actresses who have performed on the stage, on film and on television, who experience intense passion and hate. The action takes place in the family home, headed by an oppressive mother (María Rosa Fugazot), a despotic woman who decides to impose the strict mourning of her second husband, together with her daughters. The apparent calm is broken by Pepe el Romano, who awakens desire, jealousy and rivalry in five young and repressed women living with their mother (Mariana Primmel, Lucrecia Blanco, Valentina Bassi, Andrea Friguerio and Florencia Torrente). Poncia the maid, played by Andrea Bonelli, knows everything that goes on in the house and that Adela is in love with Pepe el Romano. Mimi Ardú plays the other maid. The cast is completed by Adriana Aizemberg, who plays María Josefa, the mother of Bernarda, one of the main roles.

Renata Schussheim is in charge of wardrobe, Jorge Ferrari, scenery and Gonzalo Córdova, lighting, all of whom give the new setting of Jose María Muscari an aesthetic touch. Javier Faroni produced.
