EL AMOR BRUJU
  • El Amor Bruju

The Phoenicia Festival of the Voice opens its fifth season with a new production of “El Amor Bruju.” This magical tale of unrequited love and a poor girl who is haunted by her dead husband’s spirit, all set the music of legendary composer Manuel de Falla. In keeping with the festival's Spanish theme, the story will be told by authentic Flamenco dancers and singers alongside a traditional orchestra.

The piece takes place in a Gypsy village, where the fathers of Candela and José promise their children to each other. Years later, the unfaithful José marries Candela but while defending his lover Lucía in a brawl, he is stabbed to death. Carmelo, who secretly loves Candela since he was a boy, is arrested while helping José and unfairly sent to prison. Four years later he is released and declares his love for Candela. However, the woman is cursed by a bewitched love and every night she goes to the place where José died to dance with his ghost. The curtain goes up at 8 pm on July 30, for more information or to buy tickets, go to the festival's website.
