Manuel de Falla: EL AMOR BRUJO

“A real flamenca, this gypsy woman! And God how she sings and dances!”  —Ángel Álvarez Caballero in El PaisA new production of Falla’s demonic flamenco masterpiece starring the legendary flamenco cantaora ESPERANZA FERNANDEZ in her DC debut.

El Amor Brujo originated as a gypsy entertainment supported by a small pit orchestra. Today, we know this work only through its popular orchestral suite, including the torrid Ritual Fire Dance. PostClassical Ensemble’s new production restores to Amor Brujo its narrative, dance, and flamenco song components.

Igor Stravinsky: THE SOLDIER’S TALE

 “What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale explores this timeless question in the guise of a folk tale.  In this new production, modern technology and traditional theater craft collide in a narrative that cuts to the core of mankind’s innocent desire to have it all: health, wealth, and companionship.

Actors from Georgetown University’s Department of Performing Arts
Directed by Anna Harwell Celenza
