Lo sentimos, espectáculo finalizado


As part of our endeavour to continue being a repertory theatre, this season we will once again present three Abadía productions that made an impact on audiences: “Unamuno: venceréis pero no convenceréis” (“Unamuno: You Will Conquer, But You Will Not Convince”), “Tiempo de silencio” (“Time of Silence”) and “Dos nuevos entremeses” (“Two New Interludes”) that have "never been staged before," thus also fulfilling our desire to annually preserve and perform the work of Cervantes.

La Abadía, which has presented “its” “Interludes” at various different theatres, both in Spain and abroad, achieving a connection with the audience that is quite extraordinary in view of the fact that we are dealing with texts that are more than four centuries old, now tackles two new pieces under the direction of Ernesto Arias: La guarda cuidadosa (“The Careful Guard”) and El rufián viudo llamado Trampagos (“The Ruffian Widower Named Trampagos”).

The solitary tree located in a sunny spot in the countryside has now become a well in an urban environment blighted by decadence and misery, which is where these two new humble tales take place, featuring characters that are always struggling against an adverse fate. Through this conflict between dream and reality, Cervantes talks to us about human freedom or, rather, the impossibility of achieving it. All this is presented with irony, humour and good cheer, without ridiculing the characters and whilst demonstrating their unquestionable dignity.

Two new “Interludes” that have "never been performed before" invite the audience to recognise the marvellous human dimension of Cervantes’ vision in the acts of these modest characters: women's freedom, individual courage and collective force.
