Marionettes to celebrate Lorca’s “Blood Wedding” in Shiraz

TEHRAN, May 5 (MNA) -- An Iranian puppet troupe plans to perform “Blood Wedding,” a tragedy by the Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca, in the southwestern Iranian city of Shiraz in mid June.

The show, which will be performed for 30 days by an assortment of marionettes and actors, will be directed by Hamideh Moqaddasi.


“This is first time one of Lorca’s works is slated to be staged in this form in Iran,” puppet maker and director advisor Adel Bozdudeh told MNA on Monday.


The puppeteers the students studying in universities in Shiraz, he stated.


“The objective of staging the show in Shiraz is to promote artists in Iranian cities other than Tehran and not exclusively to rely on performing facilities in Tehran,” he added.


However, he said that the puppet show would likely be performed in Tehran as well.


Based on a true story of love and betrayal, “Blood Wedding” was written in 1932 and first performed in 1933.
