Hilary Griffiths conducts the Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra in this production of Wolfgang Fortner's opera based on Federico García Lorca's tragic play 'Bodas de Sangre'. The opera tells the story of a bride (Banu Böke) and groom (Gregor Henze) and two feuding families. When his wife runs away with her ex-lover (Thomas Laske), whose family killed his father and brother, the groom goes after them and ultimately fulfils a prophecy of crime.
