Notes & Reviews:
Based on a true event Fuenteovejuna is about the people of a village in Córdoba ruled by a tyrannical commander whose actions of droit de seigneur, violence and abuse engender their intense hatred. Until one day the villagers choose freedom and they take the law into their own hands. When the villagers are interrogated by a magistrate sent to establish who was responsible, each and every inhabitant only says 'I'. In other words, 'Fuente Ovejuna did it'. First performed in 1994 in Genoa, Fuenteovejuna is considered as the ultimate work of Spanish dance, a signature piece of purity and precision. - Performed by the Compañía Antonio Gades at the Teatro Real, Madrid, on the 75th anniversary of his birth.Notes & Reviews:
