Metro joins Theatre Night with micro theatrical representations on Line 3 in relation to the figure of the most venturous Cervantes

The action is entitled ‘Next station: Cervantes’. A tribute on World Theatre Day to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ramón María del Valle-Inclán and the 4th centenary of the death of Cervantes and Shakespeare

This year Metro Madrid is joining the activities organized on the 9th Community of Madrid Theatre Night with a special representation relating to the figure of Miguel de Cervantes, which is taking place today on Line 3 of the Underground.

The initiative is entitled ‘Next station: Cervantes’ and will consist of various micro representations on trains on this line. It is a case of a work for audiences of all ages produced by the company “Factoría Teatro”, under the direction Gonzala Martín Scherman, performed by Teresa Espejo, Paloma Vidal and Iván Ugalde.

The representations, which will take place between 8-10 p.m., show Cervantes as an untiring traveller by way of an account related with numerous theatrical resources, such as a vessel on the sea, a horse on the land, and metro trains underground.

Metro Madrid was anxious to add this initiative to the tribute that the scenic arts and the Community of Madrid pay every year to World Theatre Day and which on this occasion also render homage to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ramón María del Valle-Inclán and the 4th centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare.

The programme of activities for Theatre Night includes dramatized readings, programming of dance, music and puppet shows for the youngsters – performances that will be free of charge in most cases. The official start will take place at Real Casa de Correos, where the opening proclamation, written by Alfredo Sanzol and read by Carmen Conesa, will be delivered at 5.30 p.m.
