Lope de Vega's Fuente Ovejuna
Teatro Círculo opens its 2022-2023 season with Lope de Vega’s masterpiece “Fuente Ovejuna,” a Spanish Golden Age Theatre classic known for its stirring depiction and critique of the abuse of power.
- Performed in Spanish verse with overtitles in English.
- Directed by Mariano de Paco Serrano.
For too long, the peasants of Fuente Ovejuna have meekly endured the tyranny of their lecherous overlord, but when one woman stands up in defense of her honor, the townspeople are galvanized at last into rebellion – and an extraordinary display of heroic resolve.
While Teatro Círculo’s East Village homebase venue is being renovated to receive a new façade, all Teatro Círculo’s shows this theatre season will be presented at the 36th Street Chain Theatre, located at 312 West 36th Street 3rd Floor, between 8th & 9th Avenues in Manhattan.
