Ainadamar – February 21-27, 2024 (Victoria)

Presented by Pacific Opera Victoria
February 21-27, 2024
Location: Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton Street, Victoria
Tickets are available online

Step into the mesmerizing world of Golijov’s Ainadamar, a gripping and evocative opera that transports you through time and space. Set against the backdrop of 20th-century Spain, this musical masterpiece delves deep into the tumultuous life of acclaimed queer playwright Federico García Lorca and his muse, Margarita Xirgu. The opera’s intensity swells with passion as it intertwines history, fantasy, and the relentless pursuit of artistic freedom. With lush orchestrations, haunting melodies, and soaring vocals, Ainadamar engulfs the senses, painting a vivid tableau of love, sacrifice, and the power of art to transcend the darkest of times. From the haunting echoes of Lorca’s poetry to the turbulent echoes of a nation in upheaval, this gripping tale takes the audience on an emotional journey, leaving them breathless and spellbound, forever changed by its timeless beauty.

Federico García Lorca, one of the most celebrated Spanish poets of the 20th century, crafted verses that intricately weaved together themes of love, passion, and the poignant beauty of his Andalusian heritage. Through his vivid imagery and lyrical language, Lorca captured the essence of Andalusia’s rich tapestry, evoking the scent of orange blossoms, the rhythm of flamenco, and the warmth of the sun-soaked olive groves.
