Ana Belen (The work of Federico Garcia Lorca)

The voice of the singer and actress Ana Belen, speaking of her copy of the edition of the complete works of Federico Garcia Lorca which she deposited together with the earrings that she wore in her interpretation of Adela in “La casa de Bernarda Alba” last Monday in the Caja de las Letras of the Cervantes Institute of Madrid, where these will remain until 2050.

With this gesture, Ana Belen wanted to highlight the importance of Lorca in her life, since she discovered, his “forbidden” work at the age of sixteen: “How lucky to have had that beacon of light”, said the actress.

Also present were the director of the Cervantes Institute, Luis Garcia Montero, who declared that the Caja de las Letras is “a commitment to the future”, as well as the singer-songwriter Víctor Manuel, Ana Belen’ husband, and also the interpreter Miguel Rios.

The Caja de las Letras is located in a vault that dates from the beginning of the century, when the space housed the Spanish bank Río de la Plata, and functions as a time capsule of objects borrowed by Ana María Matute, Antonio Gamoneda or Luis García Berlanga, among other personalities of culture.
