Marzo 24 – Abril 3
La Golondrina Mar 24 – April 3
by Guillém Clúa Directed by Esmanuel Rodríguez
Ms. Amelia, a well-respected singing coach, receives Ramon, a young man who wants to improve his vocal technique so he can sing a tribute at his recently deceased mother’s memorial. The chosen song, “La Golondrina,” has a special meaning for him and apparently also for Amelia, who despite her initial reticence, agrees to give him a lesson. As the afternoon progresses, the two characters unravel the details of their past, deeply marked by a terrorist attack in a bar, The Pulse Nightclub.
“I was so impressed with the experience and background of our director Ismanuel Rodríguez when I had a chance to spend time with him last year as part of our conversation series, ECAS en Casa.” says Francis Parra, Artistic Director. “We are incredibly lucky to have him directing this searing emotional play that takes you to the most intimate conversations.”
“La Golondrina shares the story of two individuals who find that they will be linked to each other forever due to a terrorist attack. But it says a lot about how we prevail with love and understanding in the face of adversity and come together to find common ground.” says Parra.
La Golondrina will be presented in Spanish with simultaneous English translation supertitles.
La Golondrina Thursday March 24 at 7 p.m. Friday March 25 at 7 p.m. Saturday March 26 at 7 p.m. Sunday March 27 at 3 p.m.
