La casa de Bernarda Alba Audiobook

La casa de Bernarda Alba

Fruto capital del universo lorquiano, esta obra sin parangón recoge la historia de Bernarda Alba, enviudada por segunda vez a los sesenta años, y de sus hijas, obligadas a sumirse en un luto que desencadenará la tragedia. Considerada la obra más madura de Lorca, La casa de Bernarda Alba cierra la llamada trilogía de la tragedia -formada también por Bodas de sangre y Yerma-. Su carácter realista y la opresión en el pecho que se siente ante la represión de unas mujeres atrapadas en un frío infierno de luto, celos, silencio y sueños truncados se ha interpretado como un presagio de los oscuros tiempos que se avecinaban y en los que el propio Lorca se convertiría en una víctima prematura. No obstante, la presente edición contrapone este texto tan magnífico como terrible a Los sueños de mi prima Aurelia, una comedia inacabada inspirada en la infancia del poeta y dramaturgo, que nos demuestra que no habíaabandonado la ironía y el sentido del humor. Vicente Aleixandre dijo... «Su corazón no era ciertamente alegre. Era capaz de toda la alegría del Universo; pero su sima profunda, como la de todo gran poeta, no era la de la alegría. Quienes le vieron pasar por la vida como un ave llena de colorido, no le conocieron.»

Hernani by Victor Hugo: French Theater Classic Play, adapted in English Audiobook

Hernani by Victor Hugo: French Theater Classic Play, adapted in English

Author: David Serero, Victor Hugo Narrator: David Mohr, David Serero, Kristyn Vario, Lisa Monde, Ron Barba Release Date: September 2021

Hernani is a drama by the French romantic author Victor Hugo (Les Misrables, Ther Hunchback of Notre Dame de Paris..etc). The play was given its premiere on 25 February 1830 by the Comédie-Française in Paris. Today, it is more remembered for the demonstrations which accompanied the first performance and for being the inspiration for Giuseppe Verdi's opera Ernani than it is for its own merits. Hugo had enlisted the support of fellow Romanticists such as Hector Berlioz and Théophile Gautier to combat the opposition of Classicists who recognized the play as a direct attack on their values. This Cast Album Recording is the first recording of the English version of this important french theater classic. Starring French actor David Serero as Hernani, Lisa Monde (Dona Sol), Ron Barba (Don Carlos), David Mohr (Don Ruy Gomez), Kristyn Vario (Josepha). Adapted in the English language by David Serero.

The Drover's Wife Audiobook

The Drover's Wife

Author: Leah Purcell Narrator: Leah Purcell Release Date: August 2021

Deep in the heart of Australia's high country, along an ancient, hidden track, lives Molly Johnson and her four surviving children, another on the way. Husband Joe is away months at a time droving livestock up north, leaving his family in the bush to fend for itself. Molly's children are her world, and life is hard and precarious with only their dog, Alligator, and a shotgun for protection - but it can be harder when Joe's around. At just twelve years of age Molly's eldest son Danny is the true man of the house, determined to see his mother and siblings safe - from raging floodwaters, hunger and intruders, man and reptile. Danny is mature beyond his years, but there are some things no child should see. He knows more than most just what it takes to be a drover's wife. One night under the moon's watch, Molly has a visitor of a different kind - a black 'story keeper', Yadaka. He's on the run from authorities in the nearby town, and exchanges kindness for shelter. Both know that justice in this nation caught between two worlds can be as brutal as its landscape. But in their short time together, Yadaka shows Molly a secret truth, and the strength to imagine a different path. Full of fury and power, Leah Purcell's The Drover's Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson is a brave reimagining of the Henry Lawson short story that has become an Australian classic. Brilliantly plotted, it is a compelling thriller of our pioneering past that confronts head-on issues of today: race, gender, violence and inheritance.
