SYNOPSIS

Men and women, a thousand troubles, a thousand pleasures

Based on its vocation of being a repertory theatre, La Abadía will once again present one of its milestone productions, Entremeses (“Interludes”).

The plots of these three stories, Cervantes’ language and the staging of this production all establish an immediate and intense bond with all those who first see them or see them again.

A solitary tree in a tiny village brings together several young people who act out three masterpieces for themselves and their neighbours: La cueva de Salamanca (“The Cave of Salamanca”), El viejo celoso (“The Jealous Old Man”) and El retablo de las maravillas (“The Tableau of Marvels”). Cervantes casts an apparently compassionate, but implacable, eye over the great lies of his age: religious fervour and piety, female honour and the lustful desire to live, and the so-called blood purity of Old Christians in a profoundly interbred nation.

Lucid appeal, compassion and humour combine with the words of Cervantes in an unrepeatable production.
