Accompanied by her sister and a friend, Bernadette Soubirous went to Massabielle, along the Gave, to collect bones and dead wood. As she was about to take off her stockings to cross the stream and go into the Grotto, she heard a sound that sounded like a gust of wind, she looked up at the Grotto: “I saw a lady dressed in white … ” Bernadette of Lourdes is the musical that follows this remarkable story.
The musical Bernadette of Lourdes is a faithful account of Bernadette’s story during the apparitions. It’s the journey of a fragile teenager whose destiny would be turned upside down in a matter of minutes.
Using her own words and authentic documents of the time, Bernadette of Lourdes faithfully describes the chronology of events, her family, her encounter with the Virgin Mary, her humble, calm and determined struggle to defend the facts. An extraordinary story that will remain in our hearts forever and that will take us from the Grotto of Massabielle via the police station to the cachot.
