Notes:
Emerging from darkness, the mythic world of Federico García Lorca comes into being. The sound of horses on the wind, the endless flow of the fountain of tears ("Ainadamar"), the trumpet call of wounded freedom, and the aspiration and determination that have been denied generation after generation echo across the hills.
