Luna Grande, un tango por García Lorca gathers the powerful influence of the great Granada author in Buenos Aires and Montevideo with the help of experts, anonymous personages and recognised names of culture like Lluís Pasqual, Juan Echanove, Verónica Forqué, Silvia Pérez Cruz, Paula Ortiz, Asier Etxeandia, Santiago Roncagliolo and Antonio de la Torre. This is the story of how Federico García Lorca conquered “a people for his theatre”.
In 1933, Federico García Lorca undertakes his second American adventure after his trip to New York of 1929 (Moons of New York). Argentina and Uruguay are waiting to crown him as one of the best playwrights of all time. There he lives the golden age of tango, meets Carlos Gardel and Jorge Luis Borges, and forges an unshakable friendship with the future Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda.
The première will be introduced by Pilar Tena, director of Instituto Cervantes in Utrecht and former director of the Federico García Lorca Centennial Coordination Office.
* SPECIAL EVENT: The première will be followed by live music. Almudena Rubio will sing some songs from Lorca’s poems. Spanish drinks and jamón ibérico will be served after the performance.
