An original production of El Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su Jardín by Federico García Lorca.

Indulge in a luscious evening of performance, poetry and music inspired by Spain’s greatest writer of the 20th century.

In Lorca’s ‘garden of love’, the fantastical story of Don Perlimplín unfolds. A wealthy and studious man, he just wants to spend his days quietly reading books. Reluctantly he is persuaded to marry the gorgeous and much younger Belisa – but what has he let himself in for?

Théâtre Sans Frontières brings its unparalleled visual and physical style to this passionate and original adaptation. With evocative live music, larger-than-life characters and Lorca’s poetry, you’ll be seduced by this surreal tale of deceit, disguise and obsession!

“Interpretations do not come much more faithful than this” The Guardian

Performed in Spanish. Surtitled in English.

Déjense llevar por una velada deliciosa de espectáculo, poesía y música inspirada por el escritor español más importante del siglo 20 – Federico García Lorca.

En el “jardín de amor” evocado por Lorca, se desenvuelve la historia fantástica de Don Perlimplín, hombre rico y estudioso que no desea más que pasar sus días leyendo tranquilamente. Con poca gana, se deja convencer a casarse con Belisa, una mujer espléndida y mucho más joven que él. Pero en qué lío se ha metido?

Théâtre sans Frontières aporta a esta adaptación apasionada y original su estilo visual y físico único. Con música en vivo evocadora, personajes extraordinarios y poesía lorquiana, les va a seducir esta historia surreal de engaño, disfraz y obsesión.

“Difícilmente se lograría una interpretación más fiel” The Guardian

En español.
