The Butterfly's Spell - Lorca
Please select date and time
A young poet beetle falls in love with an injured butterfly, a creature from outside his own realm. The other insects around him are disturbed: some try to persuade him to be sensible and remain in his own sphere, but others realise that the need to follow one’s heart’s desire, into the imagination, may be the only way to freedom. Lorca’s first play is a symbolist masterpiece, exploring many of the characteristic themes, of forbidden love and the imminence of death, that infuse his later work.
