Boda de Luna Nueva: New Moon Wedding (2005) HIDVL

Boda de Luna Nueva: New Moon Wedding is based on Federico Garcia Lorca’s Blood Wedding. This rendition was created in collaboration with residents of Grayson, Westley, and Vernalis in California. The cast of 48 included 35 local residents, with 10 community members serving on the backstage crew. Performed on the basketball courts of the newly opened United Community Center and Park, Peter Howard's bilingual adaptation of classic Spanish play Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding) transplants the tragic love story from the vineyards and wheat fields of old Spain to California's rich apricot orchards and tomato fields. The plot follows a couple of newlyweds that are torn apart after the bride decides to run off with an old lover, right after the ceremony. The party storms into the forest searching for the couple, culminating in the death of both of the wife's lovers.
