Read more about the opera Ainadamar

In his critically acclaimed opera,  Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov creates a vibrant, poetic sound world combining opera with flamenco dance and song.

Ainadamar is the Spanish pronunciation of the Arabic 'Ayn-al-Dam', meaning 'The Fountain of Tears.  It reimagines and explores the life and work of Federico Garcia Lorca - playwright and poet - whose anti-fascist stance and open homosexuality led to his death in 1936 at the hands of Franco's Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War.
