What does it take to bind a community together against violence and oppression? Despite current applications around the globe, Fuente Ovejuna (fu-EN-tay oh-vay-HOO-nuh) provides an answer based on 15th-century events that were immortalized by one of Spain’s greatest and most influential Golden Age dramatists, Lope de Vega. When a military commander returns victorious from battle to a small town, he becomes a menacing oppressor to the town’s citizens, and especially its women. Pushed to the breaking point, the people of Fuente Ovejuna rise up in a show of unity and bravery. Surprisingly infused with humor and music, this timeless masterpiece provides heart-stopping excitement.
