IB musical poised for Spanish premiere

July 25, 2013

GoodbyeBarcelonaKarl Lewkowicz writes: Goodbye Barcelona, a major new British musical celebrating the International Brigades and marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Ebro in the Spanish Civil War (promo here), which had a sellout run in London in 2011, will be celebrating its Spanish premiere on September 26, running through till at least December. , the show receives its Spanish premiere on 26th September.

But there is a shortfall in the budget which threatens the production. There is little or no public subsidy in Spain today, so we have started a crowdfunding campaign to make the Spanish premiere of this tribute to the Brigaders possible (website, video).  See excerpts from the launch in Barcelona, this past July 10, here.

Goodbye Barcelona is endorsed by preeminent historian Paul Preston (video) as well as Brigaders David Lomon and Sam Lesser who both attended performances of the show (video).
