Lorca’s Mariana Pineda, written in the early 1920s, was based on a real Granadan folk heroine of the 1830s. Described by Lorca as “A popular ballad in three engravings,” the play is lushly romantic and full of rich symbolism. Its themes, of loyalty given to a person or to an ideal, of the expectation of a reciprocal loyalty from allies that does not always come, are relevant to our present times.
