A CABEÇA DO BAPTISTA

La cabeza del Bautista(1924)

Melodrama for puppets was thus that the great Don Ramón María del Valle Inclán defined The Head of the Baptist, a piece that configures the "Altarpiece of greed, lust and death". His argument is concise, categorical, as an unforeseen blow that, with its grasp, meant to paralyze the characters of a rite who had been entertaining the hours in the shadows of nowhere. A premeditated, perfidious and nocturnal cruelty surrounds the play. The Head of the Baptist is a work in an act that has an obvious symbolic affinity with the grotesque story of St. John the Baptist, Salome and Herod.
