Strong emotions of this story of selfishness, passion and love offer the dance parallel created for the first time by Swedish choreographer Mats Ek in 1978. The new dance version of this drama for six female and one male dancer will be created by choreographer and former Ballet Chief of the Mainfranken Theater ballet in Bavarian Würzburg, Anna Vita, using the music of Polish composers Witold Lutosławski and Krzystofa Penderecki. For DJKT, this ballet title is the first collaboration with the outstanding German choreographer and a second ballet transcription of Lorca's drama after the production of his Blood Wedding in 2013.

Premiere on 12 January 2019 at the DJKT’s Black Box.
