Blood Wedding
By Federico García Lorca

Blood Wedding

Blood Wedding is a folk tragedy in three acts by Federico García Lorca, published and produced in 1933 as Bodas de sangre. The protagonists of Blood Wedding are ordinary women confronting their own passionate natures and rebelling against the constraints of Spanish society. 

The unnamed bride in Blood Wedding runs away from her wedding reception with her former suitor, Leonardo, who is married. Death, in the person of a beggar, leads the frustrated bridegroom to the guilty couple. The men kill each other, leaving the bereaved women—Leonardo’s wife, the bridegroom’s mother, and the bride—to bewail their losses.
