Iberian Suite – Teatro de La Abadía: Entremeses
One of Spain’s most acclaimed theater companies makes its U.S. debut with a revival of Entremeses, featuring three comedic one-acts by Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes.
Founded in 1995, Madrid’s Teatro de La Abadía makes its United States debut with a revival of Entremeses, one of the company’s first productions, directed by José Luis Gómez. An entremés is a short, comedic one-act play historically performed as an interlude during a long dramatic work in 16th and 17th-century Spain. This engagement features three entremeses –El Retablo de las Maravillas, La Cueva de Salamanca, and El Viejo Celoso– all written by Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes.
