Like the residents of the eponymous village, everything in Fuente Ovejuna comes together into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Whether you're a diehard fan or neophyte when it comes to classical theater, Fuente Ovejuna delivers an experience as powerful as its protagonists' resolve.
