A gripping drama of sex, power and passion from the Spanish Golden Age.
A peasant wedding. Just as Peribanez and Casilda become man and wife, the Commander of the region is carried dying to their home. His waking sight of Casilda condemns him to a desparate love. Joy turns to despair and then to revolt in this gripping rediscovery of Lope de Vega’s 17th-century classic.
Tanya Ronder’s adaptation of Lope de Vega’s Peribanez was first performed at the Young Vic Theatre, London in May 2003.
