The play ‘Blood Wedding’, a tragedy by the late Spanish dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) and directed by the Iranian theater director Mohammad Valizadegan is currently on stage at Paliz Theater in Tehran.

It is an adaptation of Lorca’s classic work, translated into Persian by the late Iranian poet and translator Ahmad Shamlou, reported.

‘Blood Wedding’ is about a young woman and two men fighting for her love. Using surrealism and Spanish folk culture, some themes present in the work include the cycle of life, the progression of time, choice, deception, fate, and nature.

Since it was written in 1932, the play has been adapted into several film, TV series and radio shows.

Valizadegan also acts in the work along with Marzieh Badraqeh, Sara Rasulzadeh, Ehsan Karimi, Amer Mosafer-Astaneh, Donya Nasr and Maryam Nourmohammadi.

It will be staged through May 21 at the theater located at No. 69, Sepand St., Aban St., Karimkhan Zand Avenue.
