Osvaldo Golijov‘s double Grammy Award-winning Ainadamar (The Fountain of Tears), revolves around Federico Garcia Lorca and his play Mariana Pineda. Pineda was martyred in 1831 Granada for refusing to reveal the names of revolutionary leaders. An actress, Margarita, passes on to her young student, Nuria, her memories of Lorca, murdered in 1936 Granada. As she dies, she tells Nuria that an actor’s individual voice may be silenced, but the hope of a people will not die.
Sung in Spanish, with surtitles in English and Welsh.
