The Consortium Centro Federico García Lorca and the Federico García Lorca Foundation have organized the exhibition ‘Federico García Lorca: The Birth of a Theatrical Revolution. 100 years since the première of El maleficio de la mariposa [The Butterfly´s Evil Spell], curated by Emilio Peral Vega and produced by the Consortium Centro Federico García Lorca, on the basis of a proposal by the Federico García Lorca Foundation in partnership with CaixaBank.
The exhibition has a catalogue in which five specialists delve into The Butterfly’s Evil Spell as the first link of a theatre revolution, which Federico himself will lead for almost two decades. It analyses the text in light of European theatrical symbolism, the importance of the Art Theatre as a dynamic framework for the Lorca experience, the decisive contribution of Barradas as a costume designer and, finally, the relevance of the incidental music chosen for the premiere.
